Yes, bad wording on my part. Thanks for the clarification.

What I meant to say was that being a PMC member does not bring any 
additional __demands on the time of the member__. However as David 
points out, there are additional responsibilities which will sometimes 
(not always) see a little extra time being committed to the project.

The important thing is there is no additional *expectation*, just more 
*opportunity* for earning karma through the meritocracy system.
