Probably the key issue is discussion vs pull requests.

Pull-requests are certainly very actionable and nice (assumming a 
documents is being managed with github). OTOH, it would be nice if the 
discussion that lead to the pull request involves the broader audience.

If mailing-lists are supposed to be required for consensus, then it 
would seem that a reasonable expectation is that discussions take place 
on the mailing-lists -- this doesn't preclude pull requests to 
eventually apply changes to a document.

Thanks,
