Actually, "the community" (not that there really is any such cohesive
thing) generally asks that vendors be "involved". Not that vendors be
"exclusively in control". There's a big difference.

So what I personally find distasteful is how there's apparently some
entity that argues that _others_ should be removed from the
maintainership. Why would that be the case? This kind of exclusivity
argument is bad. Maintainers can step down, but having others remove
maintainership seems dubious at best.

So get your politics sorted out, guys.
