    (Often abbreviated 'CTR' or 'C-T-R'.) A policy governing code
    changes which permits developers to make changes at will, with the
    possibility of being retroactively vetoed
    <>. C-T-R is an
    application of decision making through lazy consensus
    <>. The
    C-T-R model is useful in rapid-prototyping environments, but because
    of the lack of mandatory review it may permit more bugs through in
    daily practice than the R-T-C

The important piece here is '...the lack of mandatory review...'

AFAIU, it means it's very much a C[-T-R] and not a C-T-R...
