My experience has been that a group of writers usually picks the worst
possible time to get itself into these discussions, usually while
everyone else is chasing a deadline and people are screaming for the
release of a final edit.
The best time and place for writers to hash issues like this out is
during a postmortem on a completed project, preferably at an offsite
location that serves chicken wings during the evening happy hour.
After everybody's had a couple of drinks, that discussion could get pretty heated.
