I object to this declaration of consensus.  I think there was an
agreement that the FAQ entry we had, or perhaps something slightly
stronger, was ok.  "Promotion" is quite another matter, and I don't
believe there was any such agreement.  I recall arguing rather
strongly that such an undertaking needs a _clear plan_ and that it
should not be in any case undertaken for 8.3, because the suggestion
came too late in the release cycle to put the necessary planning into
the matter.

What is the giant panic on this matter, anyway?
