There's actually two points of potential relevance:

[1] When something is within someone's jurisdiction, they can ask the
technical committee to make a specific decision.

[2] When jurisdictions overlap, the technical committee can make
a decision.

What I think you're saying is that developer A can't meaningfully ask
the technical committee to make a decision which is within developer (or
developer group) B's jurisdiction when the issue is not within developer
A's jurisdiction.  And, I agree. 

[That's a bit long, mostly because the phrases are so big, but I think
it's clear enough.]
