I don't think this is really useful, it seems to just cover edge cases
that we might as well explain on list if they happen.

I suggest replacing both paragraphs that you list by this, or a
refined variant of it:

"Three Mentors gives a quorum and allows a Podling more autonomy, so the current
consensus is that three Mentors is a good number. Any experienced
Apache community
member can provide informal mentorship anyway, what's important is to make sure
the podling has enough regularly available mentors to progress smoothly."
