Well, usually our voting guidelines require three +1 etc. so for  
example having only three committers from a single company makes  
voting kind of pointless :-)

Or at least it creates the impression for other contributors that the  
project is solely led by that company...

So the absolute minimum should be three committers with at least two  
different entities behind them (e.g. two companies, or at least one  
independent, etc.) - OTOH I think the current rules outlined at [1]  
are perfectly fine.

Absolutely but IMHO we simply need some rules/requirements/guidelines  
to set a suitable framework.
