You assert this is simply policy.  I assert that this is a fundamental
to "project bylaws", much like "we don't fork" (if we don't), or "all
votes require 3 +1's".  You change such things only by consensus or by
board mandate.

Greg just finished explaining that only the chair can submit any
changes to the PMC.  Try changing that with a simple majority vote.
