I'm sure you have considered the issue before reverting.

However, my point is that you should have refrained from that until
the discussion concluded in an agreement.  If no agreement could be
reached, and no acceptable compromise was in sight, the proper way,
IMO, would be to ask John to suggest a compromise or make a decision.
This way, all the involved parties will at least have an opportunity
to present their case, and will feel that due process has been done.
