We never used so fine grained ACLs in Ceilometer.
If a person knows enough about the project, sounds responsible and is
helping, then I'm giving him/her the rights to help the project. Which
usually includes all the right so that person is not blocked by some ACL
if he/she wants suddenly to give his/her advice on a piece of code or
triage some bugs.

I've never seen big mistakes, and we don't have a lot of unrecoverable
mistakes. In the end I prefer to give forgiveness than permission.
