Ok, I do think I express myself badly.

The devil is in the details. An issue can very well has been taken care of in one of the OC but the individual can still send us a question about it. If the appeals procedures in the OC has been managed correctly, should there this time be an ability to appeal to ICG?

What I think we should do of course is to se whether due process has been used, and if it has, well, then that OC must, according to their process, be able to declare consensus. And not "appeal" to ICG.

Ok, this is a different and possibly third thing. And yes, I did for these three cases then simplify my response.

We given this have:

a. The process OC use is flawed and that is pointed out to us.

b. The process OC use is ok, but not applied correctly (i.e. violated by the OC themselves).

c. The process OC use is ok, applied correctly, but someone is not happy with the result.

I was, and you are right in that Milton, only talk about (c), while there are cases (a) and (b) as well.
