"sorry about that" is not the right answer. Like it or not, getting
rulings from core is the way this project resolves controversial
technical points when group consensus fails. Having to do it a lot is
not a positive thing: it means you aren't working with the rest of us.

In fact, you don't seem to even attempt to gather a consensus before
making changes like this, and now you're rejecting the project's
fallback decision structure as well. You're acting unilaterally and
brushing aside all objections.

This is really not how things can go; if you don't change your
attitude, you're going to end up getting kicked off the project. That
would be unnecessary and unfortunate, but you aren't offering much in
the way of alternatives.
