From looking at the provided page I'm not able to understand the "mess".
I would like to argue for giving all people that already have +2 rights also the right to force-merge. This can be a helpful tool in super-rare situations. I don't recall situations where it was misused (actually I do, but this was 2 years ago, and the person is not around any more).
Taking the possibility to force-merge away from the team does have it's benefit. Most notably: everybody must fix CI first before being able to continue working on it's own stuff, which I consider a good thing. However, this only makes sense if nobody in no other extension Wikibase runs it's tests against can ever force-merge anything. Is this given? Otherwise "they" could still block "us", but we can't unblock, leading to the same situation that inspired this ticket, just the other way around.
