The "base-system" team maintains sys-libs/zlib, and he speaks for
"base-system". I think it's fairly implicit that he's talking about
packages maintained by him, and the teams he is in. Maintainers have
the final say w.r.t. packages maintained by them, the rest of us can
only give our opinion (except in extenuating circumstances).

To say it in precise words:

* He speaks for his packages, not for all packages in-tree.
* He speaks for himself, not all maintainers in-tree.
* Gentoo is not an anthropomorphic entity with a single coherent
opinion on anything unless decided by the council.
