Organizing the FOOM debate

Why was the FOOM debate not conducted using any debate tools? Perhaps that would enable agreement theorems to actually work and the debate to be resolved. Would someone want to go through the debate and try to organize it?

I'd be interested to see the results, and I'm willing to contribute some time. Not sure I have what it takes (in terms of legitimacy as well as time/energy) to "organize" such an initiative, though I'm one of the people here who've actually tried using argument mapping tools to address important questions.
