I think this discussion would benefit from a description of how
things are done in the absense of such a written policy.
Everybody who thinks about it for five seconds, must realize that
the foundation board (with the help of employed technicians) has
the ultimate control of the servers and can in fact do whatever
they feel that they need to do, including turning off the power.
Against this de facto control, all community voting is futile.
So what has the de-facto WMF office done in those wikis that
currently lack a written document for this? How often do such
things happen? What kinds of conflict of interest appear? How
can a written policy help, as an alternative to that absense?
