Yes, but "it isn't working" is something that people have different standards for, so in practice the standard for renaming has usually been "it gets enough votes in a crowner to do so". There is clearly precedent for renaming tropes like this. This is also because, by its own admission, Tvtropes is not supposed to be a formal and rules-bound site.
Now it's clear from the thread that several people will vote against a rename, but it's not a priori clear if that's just two or three people or a sizeable amount. So that's what crowners are for
, to find out. I strongly object to the principle of "well, the crowner will possibly/probably fail so let's not have one".
Special trousers. Very heroic.
