The perspective of a noob might be helpful here: Before I was allowed to 
push to master I routinely had to stop work for hours (a couple times >1 
day) because I needed to make a commit and there was no one around to 
merge it. I am not aware of any change in my bug production rate around 
the increased permissions that isn't directly attributable to generally 
increased experience.

I am unsure of how "the rest of us" will be more productive if even the 
noobs are randomly ground to a halt waiting.
