I don't think it should be any lower than that, but I also wouldn't want to see it higher than that. GNOME has had open ACLs from the beginning and it's a good thing! There's no evidence of abuse, we shouldn't go locking everything down just because we can.
IMO, there should be three access tiers: 1) Can report issues and propose fixes 2) Can triage issues 3) Can fix issues Anything more granular than that is a bad idea. It just introduces artificial barriers that people will run into. (What happens when a maintainer goes AWOL ?) Let's keep things open like we always have! --Ray
