I think the result of this would probably be that no controversial
changes ever get implemented via this process so others will hard fork
the code and eventually make this process irrelevant. Since you need
close to 100% agreement the irrelevance would have to come as a step
function which will manifest itself in a rather disruptive manner.
The question is really is this hark-forking disruption worse than coming
up with some kind of process to handle controversial changes.
