I really like this. The only omission I can see is what the 
Investigation subproject members should do if they believe a 
developer is likely to be a short-term important danger for the 

I think in this case investigators should be allowed to bypass 
the Judiciary subproject and ask Infra to immediately suspend 
the developer's access to relevant portions of our 
infrastructure. Devrel should then immediately disclose this 
decision to the public (developer base). To continue the "real 
life analogy", this is a bit like law enforcement agencies 
keeping people in custody before they are formaly accused 
because they could be a danger to society.

Thanks for your work,
