Yes, we're already doing that it's just very confusing to a lot of  
people :)

I like your term "communiy advice" - the PPMC gauges interest by  
holding a vote where only the votes of the PPMC members are  
*counting* ("binding") and then forwards this as a community advice  
to the IPMC which holds another vote to sign it off (where only the  
votes of the IPMC members are counting/binding).

Later, as soon as the Podling has graduated, the second step goes  
away and the former PPMC can now directly vote and sign-off by itself...
