The relevant party could either be a subset of the commit bit owners (e.g.
task group) or a set of people who don’t have the commit bit (e.g. QE). See
the team examples from my original email.

Daniel, you are correct. The only caveat is that PRs can’t be merged if
they touch a file owned by a team and haven’t been approved by that team.
