I'm not thrilled with A or B.  I'd personally like to participants have a
sustained track record of participating (if even only on the mailing lists)
to one or more Apache XML subprojects.

I'd like to see a modified C.  Instead of N/2+1 (where N is the number of
committers?), I'd like to see the usual system of lazy consensus: must have
a minimum of three +1's, and more +1's than -1's.

Such an elected PMC would have an air of legitimacy and a mandate.

P.S.  Arved nearly volunteered.  Can I nominate him?
