If there is consensus than we ought to formalise it. It might have been clear 
in your mind, but it was not clear at all to me that this was the case and I 
would have acted differently in many cases would I have known it.

It is indeed in principle, but on the specifics dipends very much on the 
grounds against which the advice is given. For instance an advice like "yes, 
we miss this application" is not, in my view, to be considered as a sound 
advise for the purpose of granting an exception.

Definitively. A real plus was also the policy of bug-fix releases only do not 
need motu-release approval, I think this worked pretty well too.
