Note (because I'm an editor, on a different spec, and I take pull requests
all the time) - there is a difference between an editor and an Editor.
 Marcos is quite correct that anyone can make even pretty meaty pull
requests - the Editor is the one who should review that pull request,
providing the process checkpoint you are (also correctly) asking for.  Not
just any one can commit changes, all by themselves - that doesn't mean it's
the Wild West.

>From my own experience - it's quicker for me to review pull requests than
write it myself, any day.  :)
