There are some questions here on meta, that are asked to find a proper policy. How are they decided.

Some examples:

So, is there a way to form from this questions a policy? Or should I decide myself after reading the different points (and made one myself)?

I believe that a successful stack-exchange site becomes (largely) self regulating as people gain privileges including the ability to close questions.

It is the responsibility of the people that have these privileges to conform to the policy that is worked out through the meta-discussion, which of course may change with time as the site grows, and problems arise.

There is the safety net of the stack-exchange assigned moderators.

The only thing I am not aware of are how to change the FAQ.
