As Benson mentioned, vetoes on code are an artifact of how Apache has grown
up. With code changes it's presumed there is a readily defined standard of
"correctness" and vetoes are supposed to be limited to violations of such

I happen to disagree with this, and would prefer that those things also
fail over to Majority. However, I prefer keeping in line with ASF norms
more so, because it makes it easier for those already familiar with other
ASF groups to interact with us.
