My assessment of the situation is based on the workflow where whoever
is pushing the commits into the repo is reviewing both committers and
authors of every commit that goes in.

If that's the case I see no material difference between the above and
a committers pushing a patch contributed on JIRA by Jon Doe OR
a Github Pull Request. Both acceptable practices within existing
ASF projects.
