I think this is valid - users are certainly a equal participants in the
community.  However, I still thinks it falls to the 'developers' (and I
don't only mean coders - I think everyone with the canonical 'committer'
designation) to make the decision about what to do.

They can ignore a part of their community, in this case the Axis developers,
but that is of course at their own (and the project's) risk.
