A release is a majority vote, and cannot be vetoed. 

A product change can be vetoed, with justification. 

Nothing changes unless people do things. The voting rules are designed
to err on the side of doing. 

It's very hard to block real change in a product from a person who is
willing to do the work. 

Worse case, you go to whiteboard, and propose your own release.

That's why we call it a meritocracy. It's about doing.
