Hmm. I'd be more comfortable if this were called something without the
word "unanimous" in the name. Like, "consent of the subset" or "sectional
consent" or something. So I'm giving a tentative nay.

In principle, I like the idea. In practice, I think that it should be
better defined what it means "to be found to have intentionally deceived
another player". E.g., agreed to have done so by sectional consent of the
other players.
