To make it quick I’ll vote yes in our Council meeting this afternoon.
I think it's good enough and interesting enough for an experimental

Personally I’m finding myself broadly agreeing with what Matthew wrote.
* UX of data forms is horrible for 'simple' things like this
* We should consider joining response and action; (That will probably
mean getting rid of response)
* We should consider sending the action-accepts as IQs. Having just
implemented Jingle Message Initiation the uncertainty that comes with
messages (I’m finding myself trying to track them via receipts) is not
ideal for 'triggering actions' - Certainly I would like to know
whether my merge action has actually been merged.

Getting rid of response and making action responses (just the
responses) IQ, will probably also give a hint at the direction people
want to take the UI in. (Meaning no; you won't see your response as a
message; but instead button turns into spinning wheel while IQ is in
flight; and gets a checkmark or becomes gray one success)
