I would expect to see all times, effort made by all parties(including board) to reach rough consensus on  adoption/rejection… and not board making decisions. Is this not a discussion for the  PDPWG ?

The Bylaws have always given the Board the power to make policy without going throgh the PDWG process.  The Board has never exercised that power in the past, but the ability is there in the Bylaws in case a good reason appears in the future.  We are talking about reducing that power so that the Board cannot abuse it.
