Tweak 2 things please.... they aren't Procedures - those are whatever
suits the project at the current time...

please substitute Policies (which are also dynamic but established, guiding
principals) which is what every ASF project has had forever (even if they
didn't really pay attention to the fact that they were following established
traditions as policy).

And these should be the Uniform Policies which already exist at
http://www.apache.org/dev/ - I'm not suggesting they are complete, we
should definitely help to flush them out.

Projects at graduation should either have a commitment to follow them
in whole; or have a written set of policies which are deliberately updated
to suit that project.

Good thought, I think we are already closer than you suspected, and I think
your idea to flush them out is also goodness.
