Our PMCs have a lot of leeway and the board doesn't micromanage them.

In our loosely-coupled communities vetoes can give too much power to
individuals, that's why https://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html
is so restrictive about them.

I'd say broadly allowing vetoes works as long as people don't use
them, or just use them in a friendly and temporary way. But if people
are all friendly you don't really need rules anyway ;-)
