What is the point of having even the question raised if core obviously works through their own channels, with their own decision making without bothering what is expressed on the list?

I don't understand.  It seems to me either you must think that the
members of core didn't read the list discussion before making up their
minds, or what you actually object to is the decision they made, but
have decided to complain instead about how they made it.

I, on the other hand, have a reasonable degree of confidence that before
telling Roy to go ahead and commit the terminfo code, the members of core
did in fact read the list discussion and look at the code.  Perhaps they
didn't make the same decision on the basis of those data which you
personally would have made, but then again they are under no obligation
to do so.

I think it would be fair to say that based on the discussion that was visible in the thread referred to definitely didn't show much of any support for the introduction, much less a concensus.

But appearantly core must have either seen it differently than I did (which I frankly can't see how they could, but it is a possibility), or else they decided that the discussion in that thread wasn't relevant to their decision making.

That was the point I was trying to make. Obviously I failed.

But I don't see the point in whipping this horse any more. Let it die.
