Exactly: our project gets to say what goes for our project.

Me too. GH, as a closed system, intentionally limits what we can do with it. I'm pretty sure
I asked in the past to turn off PRs and was told that's not possible. I'm pretty sure with
GitLab we could turn off PRs.

That is certainly the effect we get from GitHub's PRs and the ASF non-integration, but it's
not necessarily true of the PR concept in general.
