You're absolutely right.  And I think there is a fundamental point that
needs to be understood here - the NetBSD code base is owned by
TNF and changes may be made to any part of it by anyone who has
signed a developer agreement.  Depending on the nature of the change,
it may be appropriate to discuss it with a number of other people
before committing it, but there is no rule like "every kauth change
*must* be discussed with or blessed by Elad" or "every IPFilter change
*must* be discussed with or blessed by Darren."

Now if only rules/guidelines whting only worked with speed limits and 
road ;-)
