The important thing I think is to have a clear way of knowing
whether a given decision needs to be formal or not.

Maybe one way might be to have the same system as
Westminster - if you think that what you're proposing doesn't
need a vote, then put it out as:
"OK, so we're in agreement then? If no-one complains in
$TIME, it's a wrap"
where $TIME > an agreed minimum

would that be a reasonable compromise?
