I may be missing something.  All I've seen so far were some of the
leaders of some of the projects being joint signatories to a letter on
overseers@.  As far as I'm aware, that is not how any of these
projects make or announce **project decisions** with/to their
respective constituencies.

Indeed.  The onus is obviously on the shoulders of the proponents of
this proposal to convince each sourceware guest project to consent to
move.  If you wish to frame any dissent as "blocking full migration",
then I'd say the job of convincing everyone just has not been up to
par.  Perhaps it was the wrong goal all along.
