I think Craig's point is finee as it is:  there may be some changes that we
will think are important enough to get in there for some reason not previously
mentioned.  When that happens, we can vote as usual.

My key point was that nobody should be the first to vote up things like "add
second space after period in perluseless.pod" -- once the first vote is cast,
other cherrymainters will be distracted by the vote.  In fact, I'd urge the
first person to look at that commit to reject it so nobody else even considers

So, rather than come up with the perfect rule and a set of mechanisms for
overriding it, I just hope we can stay laid back, but much less willing to
backport low-value changes.
