Sigh ... well, all I can really add here is that the projects you
mention might benefit from a bit of therapy to cure their control-freak

The reason why communities should reach consensus through public
discussion is that, when instead you have a formal vote every time
someone gets an itch, you're likely to end up with some very nasty
behind-the-scenes vote swapping. Of course I'm not accusing anyone of
doing that ... though, sadly, I've heard rumours.

Suffice it to say that what you describe is not the ASF Way.
