I meant to delve into this in more detail, but was too tired to...
I think the 'consent out of love' was a bit of a red herring, or possibly obscured by the language. It would be impossible for people to love the *Monks* on such short notice. So, it's obviously the case that the consent has to be *given* for love, and Bill fits because she wants to save the Doctor's life.
It's something to base their rule *on*, (see pure intent, fairy tales etc.), but I don't know that they would have needed the world's consent. Clearly they operate on 'people with power' rather than people power...
Also, I more than suspect that their 'rule' is a massive AU, and thus needed a single thing to activate it.
