It would be great if that were true.  If so, then the recent arguments
have been a terrible misunderstanding.

There's nothing preventing people from doing this AFAICT.  If someone
is interested in pursuing a change to a package or collection of
packages, they can do so with or without some organizational
structure.  Problems would arise only if they proposed a backward
incompatible change, which isn't to say that backward-incompatible
changes are impossible.
