Actually, I was merely trying to replicate what the devrel stuff sais on
this ;-) It isn't about a dispute on documentation aspects. If that were the
case, I'd suggest a "consensus model" on the mailinglist and indeed project
lead having a final say if consensus cannot be found. 

But when developers are more in dispute on non-documentation related
aspects, the devrel guide/policy currently positions the project lead as a
first mediator.

Of course, we could just drop that part (since it already is in the policy)
or rewrite it according to your suggestion (but then make it clear it is
about project-related activities).
