#2: acknowledge that future blockchain governance outcomes aren't decided yet, and that existing governance norms and processes can change
I thought that the future blockchain governance outcomes were baked in when ethereum.org was launched with the headline:
Build unstoppable applications
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
That to me reads as the question being settled, and the objective of the Ethereum project being to create an immutable platform that is resistant to censorship and third-party interference, aka permissionless.
