A very subtle point, and I don't expect it to completely make sense yet, 
but I will put it out for you to consider it anyway:

The PMC should try to limit itself to management decisions and actions. 
  All technical decisions should be made by the set of active 
committers.  What makes this particularly confusing is that the PMC 
should be made up of the set of active committers.  But all that means 
is that many people will be fulfilling multiple roles.

Most decisions should require 3 +1 votes and no vetos... where any 
committer is eligable to vote.

Decide carefully what votes you want to limit to only PMC participation.
