In the idea sketched up earlier, I deliberately consider library review
a significantly different process from making project-wide strategic
decisions. An author can show up on the list out of blue and
propose a library, collect support and submit for review. It is possible
because libraries are reviewed purely based on technical merit.

That is different, I think.

I'm not defending my proposal, which I aimed to keep brief.
I'm only offering some further clarification.
