Maybe we don't need an enforceable code since, as Oliver wrote, we can't 
cover all abuses.

What's missing from the current guidelines to complete them is probably:

- A paragraph about avoiding abuse of privileges by committers and 
[P]PMC members (and this would cover everything from repeatedly breaking 
the build to injecting personal PayPal links into the website)

- A paragraph about inactivity (saying, at the very least, that [P]PMC 
members who expect to have a long inactivity period should notify the 
[P]PMC and consider whether voluntarily suspending their privileges)

- A final article with the list of possible consequences Dave listed, 
but here I agree with Oliver that we merely want to list them and 
discuss case by case instead of discussing a detailed policy that won't 
cover all cases anyway.
