I've come to the conclusion that in a distributed SCM, fine grained access control and permissions management shouldn't be a design goal. There are better and easier ways of achieving the same results with a distributed SCM.
What should be a design goal is clear ownership of a patch or changeset, and that can easily be accomplished in most such systems with digital signatures.
