I think this discussion about details is pretty much irrelevant.

The original problem is that using a -2 to block a change that has been approved by the module maintainer is basically abusing gerrit to break our governance model. QUIP-2 clearly states that the maintainer has decision power in case no agreement can be reached. 

You might disagree with that +2, but it is *not* your decision at that point. As an Approver you are expected to know our governance model and work within its frame. So if the maintainer gives a +2, you are abusing the system by continuing to block the change and violating our governance model.
