Sure, but giving a subjective reason (like "it's not worth the effort
/ binsize increase / ...) is at least better than having no reason at
all, and the majority of developers agreeing on a subjective reason is
good enough imo. If the NoDo items are discussed on a regular basis
(like the proposed discussion on each years DevCon) such reasons also
have to stand. Which obviously means that if there isn't a majority
for holding up the subjective reason then it's no longer a NoDo item.

I completely agree with Frank here.
