There's only one conflict, and the 'voting' thread hints at this.

If you are one of *many* initial committers, but throw your IPMC vote
around, you win no respect and undermine community.

But as only *one* of many committers, and treating your vote as equal
to each of your fellow committers, you can balance this fairly.

Just be sure to call out when you are throwing out an IPMC vote on the
wisdom of essential ASF process and policy, vs. when your vote is simply
a PPMC vote on one of many ways of doing things technically or process
wise.  And there's no real issue if you do this fairly.
