I agree, +2 should be retained by the maintainer, or a smaller set of 
developers as decided by the maintainer.

As for submitting, that might not be a necessary requirement (though I'm not 
against trying it out) - we are a well behaved bunch usually - I don't think 
anyone would actually commit something that has not passed review.
