I would prefer rules that distinguish between adding a feature to 
trunk and including a feature in a stable release.


Committers may introduce new modules in trunk.

Anyone can call for a vote to have the module removed, requiring a 
passed vote (i.e. three +1s) for removal.

When a release comes near, anyone who doesn't think the module is 
release quality may call a vote. The module needs a passed vote for 
inclusion in the release.

This way a module may mature in trunk. But if it doesn't due to lack 
of interest, it would still need people to actively support it in 
order for it to be released.
