Yes, i now see that "overwhelming consensus" is a bad choice of words 
here - either there is consensus or there is not, it can not be 
overwhelming.  And it only makes sense to speak of consensus with a 
clearly defined group of people which does not exist here.

So i should have better said among those participating in discussions on 
the matter on several occasions there was a large majority in support 
for such a change.
