Votes should be a tool to confirm consensus... not an iron hand.

If the consensus of the developers is to use the dependency which is
external to the project, then that is fine. If there is no consensus then
the dependency will not be introduced.

We already have a policy that adding Category B dependencies to Core
requires approval of the PMC, I don't see that there is much value in
adding even more to this document... but if you can suggest a patch and
people agree with it...
