Right, but this still strikes me as too little review for important 
patches, and too much chore for trivial bugfixing.

However, I agree that different rules could be put in place for 
different branches depending on their level of maturity (the STATUS at 
the root of the branch could indicate the current commit procedure that 
is in place).

As far as I am concerned, the goal is to avoid chaotic development and 
the unavoidable nagging conflicts that go along with it. By itself, I 
don't see any problem having a slightly slower pace of development, since:
- conflicts result in months of wasted time at the ASF since there's no 
central authority
- some feature work is sometimes neglected, and (unfortunately) causes a 
much longer delay that any commit procedure ever could (ex: JSP 2.1)
