i don't think that this is right. the charter expresses the scope of the 
mission and lays down some procedures. jakarta can probably look after 
enforcing it's interpretation of it's charter.

IMHO what people should be more concerned about is enforcing the policy of 
the ASF as promulgated by the board. but in order to enforce this policy, 
it needs to be clearly stated so that the folks on the pmc (such as myself)
  can understand precisely what's meant by it.
