Two points:

1) If a PMC gets to the point of being deadlocked to the point where it 
is no longer functional, it will simply be disolved.  Conceivably, at 
that point, proposals for a new PMC may be entertained by the board.

2) Code commits, arguably the most technical aspect of *any* project, 
are to be done in accordance to a "consensus based development process".
