I find this description a bit fuzzy and I assuming part of the goal of
documenting this is conflict resolution.  I would like see a few
different decisions presented as examples to make the point you are
trying to make.  So for example,  let's say the Desktop SIG wants to
keep the current default theme and the design team proposes a new one or
vice versa,  whose has the final authority?    Does whatever is upstream
win or is the responsibility within one team or another? 

What if the design team proposes a new UI for system-config-printer or

The guideline suggests that design team should be consulted on Fedora
specific UI changes but is there a mandate or even a strong
recommendation to do so?
