If we trust mentors to ensure that their podling does the right thing as a
board committee this basically *is* a TLP and we wouldn't need an IPMC, but
if podlings need an IPMC then that must be because we allow for the
podlings to make missteps without bringing down the hammer.

Seems to me that simply explaining and teaching the principles that we are
upholding, the purpose of the roles, and the reasons why we chose this
mechanism to induct external projects would go a long way towards most of
the specific points I have seen raised so far.
