I think that the PPMC already has to deal with people issues  
(meritocracy isn't free) and I would trust the PPMC to do the right  
thing at graduation. After all, one of the major graduation  
requirements is that the podling community "get it" and a big piece  
of "getting it" is that the committers have earned their karma rights.

Bottom line, I think there's merit in adding a graduation requirement  
on the PPMC to review the committer list and use their judgement as  
to which of the initial committers has earned the right to continue.
