I wouldn't feel optimistic about a code of conduct that didn't represent
our current consensus. We have a few rules here and there in GNOME (see
the release process, for instance). They grew gradually out of consensus -
that's why we very rarely need to enforce them. But just because something
is already agreed, it doesn't mean it's not useful to state it and
advertise it. It reinforces what we already have, and gives us more of it.

So, yes, a little rhetoric is good sometimes.

The objections I see so far to this are
- It wouldn't change anything
- It's not necessary.

You forgot my "It has the potential to bring tedious discussions on
interpetations" (which, amusingly, this thread is beginning to feel
like :)

The page currently looks like a general "remember to be nice to
people"-reminder, which probably won't have that much controversy
