Everything is an issue of faith. PostgreSQL is able to operate easily 
without draconian rules by using a level of trust for its participants.

In business, I am taking faith that someone will pay the invoice for the 
work rendered. If they don't, I sue. That is no different with PostgreSQL.

If the PostgreSQL Liaison started acting in a way that was directly 
counter to the implicit interests of the PostgreSQL community, he/she 
could be removed by the PostgreSQL Fundraising Group.

Further if it was considered fraudulent activity the SPI could sue and 
or file charges (depending on what happen) that individual.
