That's the point, not really talking of "your team" here. The (somehow a
bit hypothetic, granted) point raised here is where you would find yourself
in front of say one year of coding being proposed. And IIUC, we're only
talking about *PMC members* and values here. Sure, one company/individual
could work on his fork and propose a lot of changes later when he finally
wants/is allowed to, and btw he hasn't any direct commit access to the
project and so on.

 About growing the PMC, I suppose we're looping here ;-). IIUC, again, I
think the point is precisely to define those values/rules to be able to
induct more serenely new PMC members while asking them to adhere to those
