Jeremy, what I'm saying here, and also addressed in comments with the
related resolution patch, is that personality reasons are the ones that we
have to respect and no form of governance change could help solve the
problem. However other than that, we could always find a way to address the
issue for remedies, if we don't have a good answer now maybe we will have
sometime later.

Preference on  social tooling is something that the technical committee is
able to address, with isolation of usage of proprietary tools for certain
scenario and also strict policy on enforcing the open source communication
solutions we have today as the central ones the community will continue to
use. This is not an unsolvable problem given that we have a technical
committee, but personality issues are, no matter what governance instrument
we have.
