No, consensus means no one chooses to block consensus. And since Maven
is in place, it would take a decision by consensus to remove it.
However, at the end of the day, that's for you all to decide.

I'm trying to remove confusion. Much email has been sent on the
premise that Maven specially and uniquely raises certain IP and policy
issues. It doesn't. It does offer some constraints and opportunities
for coping with these issues.

However, if I'm not being helpful, and it seems that I'm not, I'll
return to lurking.
