We need rules to enforce best practices, but I can only agree with you
that during the merge there has been a lot more procedures and choices
are increasingly being removed from the maintainers hands to go to
specific groups. I think this is a very bad direction. I am not saying
that there shouldn't be a control (mainly from the rel-eng group, from
fesco for packaging issues...) but the choice should always be in the 
packager hands.
