Correct on both counts.

I can however relate one data point in favour: Subversion has had a very
low bar to granting (partial!) commit access since long before it was an
ASF project. Anyone could request commit access to a branch and was
given it without a formal vote. Any full committer (these days, PMC
member) could give a contributor access to part of the source tree.
These partial access grants have never been enforced with actual
access-control restrictions, and in the 12+ years of Subversion's
history there have only been a very few cases of people committing
outside their designated area -- every one of them by accident, AFAICR.
