Hmmm... this is the first and only time I've seen a policy statement
that discourages active contributors from casting a(n advisory) vote
when they've reviewed the contribution/release/etc etc.

I personally think it's counterproductive advise; those who are active
continuously, bother to submit patches, solve bugs, cast votes and are
generally responsive on list are usually the ones who should be considered
to grow the community as new PMC members.
