I don't think a vote is required.  I agree that any committer should be 
able to create a branch.

Note however, that, if a committer were to wish to create a branch that 
alters, e.g., the RAID fs stuff or a Common API that's used by both HDFS 
and MapReduce, then they'd have to be a committer in both HDFS and 
MapReduce.  So not all committers are able to create feature branches 
equally, just as not all committers are able to create release branches. 
  For the record, I find this distinction counter-productive.
