doesn't say, that everybody has to stop editing the article
until we have a consensus. Indeed we can (and should) try out
new ways of displaying those images. If people honestly attempt
to find a common ground, we might be lucky and find a solution
with a broader backing.
You don't have to know there is a consensus before making a change,
certainly, but if you know there isn't a consensus, then you shouldn't
make the change. (Does that make sense?)
