IMO, he's wrong.  The Incubator PMC is the sole body recognized by the ASF's
legal structure.  The only authority exercised by a PPMC is by virtue of
Incubator PMC member votes, which is why I encourage all PPMCs to have at
least 3 active Incubator PMC members.

It is reasonable to document, but the policy is not an Incubator policy.  It
is derived directly from our bylaws.  The PPMC is an Incubator artifact.
