they do not have consensus. The top20 are called "consensus witnesses" and a super majority (17 out of 20 [I think]) have to agree for a fork to be implemented. This means that 17 of the consensus witnesses have to upgrade to the new code for it to go through.

Its good thing if 17 out 20 have to agree let's hope there will be a no need to do this again
