Agreed -- we shouldn't be imposing that everything which is a project or
SIG be run like it's a government.

Especially in cases where we're talking about chunks of coding, strong
leadership in the form of a project maintainer is likely to often work
better.  This is one of the things which is often pointed to as a reason
for why the Linux kernel is more successful than the various free BSDs
