Note, in the distant past, FESCo's rule was majority of the folks present
with an attempt made at unanimity by the present members by resolving (as
much as possible) their differences in opinion. This was actually stated in
meetings but I don't think that it made it to the wiki -- thl might know as
that was during his tenure as chair.
However, I don't believe this rule has been followed in a *long* time so
it might just be a historical footnote to this conversation.
