AIUI IP clearance was intended to provide a way for the IP on medium
sized code contributions to be cleared in a transparent fashion

IMO accepting a codebase through IP clearance from a small community
then electing the prime contributors as committers is a clear way to
game the incubator system as currently set up

IMO the prime reason why TLPs prefer to take this approach is that the
IPMC has failed to create an appropriate path whereby small codebases
with small communities can be adopted by a larger apache community
