I'm with Scott here. It's a fact there have been several release cycles
and motu-{uvf,release} teams to run without a charter, it doesn't mean
its members cannot do their job or they have too much power to block the
release. A charter could be useful if motu-release members exceed their
role (which is basically assist people, not blocking or blaming them),
but I hardly remember conflicts.

Also, we didn't write drafts internally, but we reported our progress to
MOTU community. Announcements of motu-release charter drafts were
publicly made (IRC discussions and some mailing list posts, I can sort
them out if needed) and we always looked for community input.
