No.  We are a Community.  We do not ALLOW an "accountable person" to fail.
We are supposed to be here on behalf of the ASF and on behalf of the
podling.  It isn't a matter of an accountable person failing.  If we see
things not getting done, we need to take some responsibility.

Yes, there will be too many projects for everyone to be everywhere.  That is
why we need to make sure that the PMC is large enough.  But we must
structure things so that there are enough eyes, and trust that if any ONE
person sees something, that they will make sure it gets addressed.  That may
mean taking care of it, or it may mean making sure that it gets taking care
of, but either way, we are all responsible.

You may not be able to directly address something, but you can still raise
the issue with fellow PMC members, solicite advise and/or participation,
make sure that you get some, raise it to the Board if you don't, and get the
Committers involved.
