This line of reasoning is fallacious. I could reverse it and talk about
people who are demotivated because they feel the current maintainer is
incompetent. How could this help guiding the decision?

If Matthias can refuse someone to be part of the core team because he
doesn’t trust that person, that’s a veto power.
