Sounds awful elitist and Machiavellian for a community driven project.

I agree, but then you are just granting the illusion of a community 
controlled project arent you? Essentially the real discussion concerning 
dev will have been moved to f-m right? I understand that trying to keep 
the project moving without all of this "change is bad" and "me too" crap 
is important but i think that this "fix"  fails to live up to the 
community aspect of the project doesnt it? Essentially your voice doesnt 
matter if you arent a maintainer anymore because the other lists will be 
read less and less by RH and maintainers over time. As a result you will 
lose the community driven nature i think because all of the opinions 
batted about will be those of maintainers alone. A moderated white list 
of users that conduct themselves in a prescribed manner makes most sense 
to me.
