Exactly; I think that's a good guideline.  If something is done 
unilaterally and it's reverted (e.g. blocking a user; speedy-deleting a 
page, moving a page, etc.), it should be discussed at least briefly 
before being re-instituted.

Of course, it doesn't help when our own Jimmy Wales ignores this 
guideline, even going so far as to use beaurocrat powers to "win" a 
wheel war.
