If there were a mechanism (?) to impose an edit freeze while discussion happens, I'd vote for that, but I don't know that there is one. Actually... there is a mechanism for that.

I can see myself misunderstanding your flag. The segment "on the answer" is fairly ambiguous. Normally I would suggest commenting and then flagging.

I personally would flag a couple ...
