In some of these cases, especially if it is about reverting stuff that
fixes a long standing problem but in an ugly way, being as polite as
you should be IMO can be rather hard. In this case someone not involved

I have some doubts that we can organize it, but I guess someone doing a
bit of arbitration (possibly also off-list) might be a good idea.
If we want to improve things there are also other things everyone can
do. For example I have lately seen quite a few jokes about Diego's
spelling fixes (and no, not only from Michael) I really could not find
funny at all. Problem is, with email it's hard to know how it is meant,
so I decided to say nothing so far, but I wonder if that was the right
