The Apache voting policy page you linked agrees that binding votes are
from committers, and that "all others are either discouraged from
voting (to keep the noise down) or else have their votes considered of
an indicative or advisory nature only."

But some things may require noise.  I for one am essentially lurking
here as a user, watching the progress of the product on its way to
becoming once again current and viable.  I'm technical, but have never
touched the guts of OOo.

So if you bring up a change, presented as a lazy-concensus proposal,
and I think it would adversely affect my experience as a user, I'd
very much like to be able to object, even if my objection is
non-binding.  I can't stop you, but on the other hand I'd rather you
not stop me.
