That's not true of other projects I'm on (Commons, JMeter, HC).
CTR is allowed to project members; it's not reserved to PMC members.
Where RTC is required it normally applies to PMC as well.

What is the point of being on a PMC unless one participates - which

Also PMCs are a legal structure; not sure it would be possible to
bypass the vote/board ACK.
