Tomáš I dont't mind following your viewpoint at all, and if the OMC thinks
the same, that's fine. Also, I agree that an OTC/OMC discussion does not
automatically have to be resolved by an OTC/OMC vote.

Maybe my original post was a bit misleading. The main motivation behind it
was my impression that we tend to start many technical discussions with a
general discussion about whether it should be discussed/decided by the
OMC or the OTC.
