I do not merge anything unless it has a dev +2 before I come along (unless it is a trivial doc-only spelling/grammar change). I think there is a lot of community fear that if you give a writer core status on a project, that they’re just going to run wild and pass things they don’t understand.

If it makes you feel better, I don't think this is specific to tech 
writers. There's a lot of (unjustified IMHO) fear in general about 
giving out core review rights to a subset of a repo when we don't have 
ACLs to enforce that.

Personally, I totally agree with you and John here - we already place a 
huge amount of trust in core reviewers. If we can't trust them to not 
randomly +2 stuff they don't understand then we have much, much bigger
