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
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 ;-)
