Take a cross-section of {all editors, weighted by the (frequency *
size) of their edits}, and ask them to reach a decision on
keeping/deleting an article.  That's what I would call representative
of 'Wikipedia consensus' on its deletion.

Discussion before polling/voting : good.  In practice this not only
better-informs participants, it weights the opinion of those who
participiate in and follow a discussion more strongly than those who
drop in for 30 seconds and leave a 3-word comment or vote.
