Nope... It's not exactly like that.

That's correct... Majority decides, but in case 3.x included 
support for Servlet 2.3 and/or JSP 1.2, that would be a violation 
of a PMC decision, and in that case the PMC and the board should 
step in and force the team not to release...

Lack of 2.3/1.2 support in 3.x tree was a PMC/Board resolution, so, 
that would be a problem that would be "escalated" to the next tiers 
in the foundation.
