I just want to point something out:

Members of this list do not have to comment on anything, and generally 
don't.  This list is usually very quiet.  Paul makes all sorts of 
changes without much comment.  If he didn't, there would be almost no 
updates, and the database would be out of sync, and people would be 
upset about that.

The role of the TZ Coordinator is one of designated expert.  He can and 
does seek views of the community, but the process laid out in 6557 
expects him to use his judgment and not to only rely on that consensus.  
We wrote it that way because to do otherwise would require more work 
from this group of volunteers.

And so it is misleading to say that Paul moved forward without much 
support.  He is SUPPOSED to move forward without much support, though he 
should take great care when he does.
