My suggestion arising from this is that voting a community vote where  
everyone states their case and casts a vote is followed by a PMC  
decision. It seems (to me) confusing to have this multi-class voting  
system which conflates two separate processes.

The PMC decision would only need explanation if it were a veto of a  
community vote.
