seeing it purely from AOO, I would expect an admin to be PMC, otherwise 
it will be difficult for that person to follow PMC policy discussions.

I dont disagree, it just might force us (infra) to change what a admin 
can do. RIght now admin role is similar to "root".

If the project decides to go down that way, then implementing it is a 
infra problem....and NOT a reason not to go down that road.
