Daas Torah (some categories)

Some of my commenters have complained about using the generic term "Daas Torah" to refer to everything from asking advice on a major life-changing decision, to calling a Gadol about what to serve for lunch.
In an effort to simplify Daas Torah for Blog-sized Hock, lets apply an old line about Halakha:
For Reform Judaism Halakhah has a voice.
For Conservative Judaism Halakhah has a vote.
For Orthodox Judaism, Halakhah has a veto.
The same three could be used to understand the power of Daas Torah in various thinkers & theories.
