I didn't understand this as a technically binding ruling, rather as a 
forewarning to maintainers, from the TC; this is underlined by the "the 
TC expects" rather than explicitly using one of the TC powers (§6.1).

I don't see it that way; the developers' body would be exercising one TC 
power without overriding a previous decision. Let's see what the 
secretary@ (CC'ed) thinks…
