No, I wrote the article to say the things I thought needed to be said.
With regard to the solution: yes it's early to be celebrating. But I do know that there is a strong desire in the community to solve this problem; that's why a lot of non-Android people have put a lot of time into it. I also see that the shape of the proposed solution is such that it may solve a number of problems for other people as well. And it doesn't look hugely difficult to try out. So I think something will happen.
But, then, I've always been an optimistic person.
As for "merge authority," only one person really has that. But there has always been a strong consensus culture in the kernel community; it has traditionally been easy for a developer with any amount of standing in the community to hold things up. Nothing new there.
