I'm inclined to agree.

When a sub-committee or sub-project of Fedora can't come to a decision 
on something, it is the Board's mandate to see to it that the decision 
is still made in a timely fashion, and to provide not only the decision, 
but also the rationale behind it.

And if the Board is deadlocked, then the FPL must make the call.

That doesn't mean the Board or the FPL has to make the decision all by 
themselves, but the decision MUST still be made.
