I don't see any problem with asking people to propose changes to this
stuff on the dev list before committing, but requiring an actual vote
for any change to it seems kind of extreme.  Perhaps a lazy consensus
would work.  If someone proposes a change on the list and nobody
objects within a certain amount of time they can assume that it's ok
to proceed.  I mean worst case we can always revert a change that
turns out to be problematic, and avoiding unnecessary bureaucracy is
generally a good thing IMO.
