That's a poor example, since we're actually talking about people who
are already trusted in the sense that they have read/write access.
People who can be kicked out, or fired, if they misbehave. A better
example would be: "We could have a non-technical policy that certain
committers are only allowed to commit in certain areas, documented in a
file like COMMITTERS, and _not_ enforce it with authz."
