Given the requirements FESCo + if they checks on the bugzilla activity 
of the individual that wants to become a provenpackager and take that 
into consideration when approving the request I dont see why not.

So basically it would be like this..

If you are a provenpackager you have the power to push directly to 
stable without any karma requirements however if you are not a 
provenpackager you will have to follow what ever procedure FESCo RELeng 
and QA come up with at any given time until you have been accepted as a 
provenpackager by FESCo.

Sounds like a draft to a solution everyone can agree with?
