Because there is no such thing as a PCM. The Engineering Steering
Committee has an advisory role.
And most of the time a good half of the dev/qa that join the weekly
call are not 'officially' member of the ESC.
There is no 'binding' vote... in fact there is no vote at all.
Decision are made by those who do, and
so far the role of ESC has more been one of coordination, in the sens
of sharing and communicating
what is happening rather than 'deciding'.
So really, who got what 'title' or what 'distinction' is very far from
the daily concern.
Note that there is not  even the requirement to be a TFD member to be
on the ESC... not for that matter to have commit access.

And you asked: who approve 'release': well roughly the calendar
modulated by Bugzilla and QA volunteers.
