There are some graduation criteria, such as licensing or IP issues, that 
are clearly objective and for those a veto option would be appropriate. 
I would trust, though, that we would never obtain concensus should any 
such issue exist.

Other criteria, for example the diversity of the community, are more 
subjective. Simple consensus seems more appropriate.

Citing the recent Derby discussion, Roy voted against with clear issues 
that have been resolved; however, the issue with community is far muddier.
