That's a good heuristic, but not an absolute rule.

If there's no technical conflict, there is no reason for the committee
to be involved.

If there's a conflict, but one of the developers is inactive, that
could be a situation where the committee needs to get involved (but
typically the result there would be an orphaned package, so this isn't
a particularly likely situation).
