You make it all sound very complicated when it is not.
1) is a proposal to in any way mess with the DNS of any given IMC
2) that IMC were the only one to block and
3) a bunch of oither IMCs wrote in support of it
then I would consider the proposal passed. This does NOT mean that in
general anyone effected by any sort of decision is not allowed to
block, it is only relevant when the proposal is an action taken
regarding an intervention on one IMC. So, if anyone proposes for the
network to intervene on the website of Liege or any other collective,
then that colelctive should not be able to block. If the network is
making a decision which happens to effect a bunch of indymedias, then
no such provision should exist.
It is the same thing when a collective decides about one particular
member. Say that a proposal was made to take away someone's key to
the local indymedia space because at midnight every night that person
peed all over the floor. That person could not block. However, if
the collective instead decided that it would close every night at
11pm, then anyone could block including the pee-er.

could be immune from blocks by partisan IMCs? How do we determine who
the partisan IMCs are? Would it just be the Belgian IMCs banned from
