Correct. I use it because I though it reflected the decision making  
structure, and I agree with that structure i.e. a community that makes  
arguments to convince a committee, said committee being the actual  
decision makers. In this case, the people with commit rights are  
effectively the decision makers, because Couch will be what they commit.

Maybe the term causes distress. I'll cease and desist.
