I don't see the PMC as project leads.  They have more of an administrative
responsibility than a technical one.  See [1].

There is no hierarchy in the engineering.  Nobody gets to tell anyone else
what to do.  Committers can veto your work, but for technical reasons, not
because it wasn't on the roadmap or a high enough priority.
