Sorry, I was a bit unclear. I simply wanted to express that I agree
with the things Frank originally said. It's debatable how "hard" a
rationale is in relation to a reason. My understanding of "rationale"
is to be a more technical variant of "reason". Though I'm not a native
speaker, so it might be a good idea to define the meaning of
"rationale" (just looked it up and it does match my current
understanding in my language, though translations aren't 1:1 at all :)

In other words, I agree that a NoDo item needs some kind of reasoning
why it's a NoDo. I don't think that a NoDo developers agree on that
have no technical but only subjective reasons should be invalid, given
that there is a majority agreeing.
