Hi Drew

For myself I'm trying to set a good example, but if that is being taken
as a sign of my agreement that this one team has final say in all work
product then let me assuage you of that misconception without further

If the person(s) working on a particular item wants to put their work up
for review, I would encourage them to do so, voluntarily.

Yes, however, if following the meritocratic style of the LibreOffice project, you have, in my most honest opinion, merit to do this. You have a proven track record of working within the confines of the agreed guidelines and you have proven yourself, clearly, as an asset to the project. Having any kind of vetting process is to make sure that people, who have not as yet merit with the project, have a validation process to give merit to the their work. Nothing wrong with voluntarily passing items for review, but I would imagine, that if these people have not as yet reached merit within the group, that a validation process should be followed. I happen to like the process under which we are working at this point.

As far as the text in the material, in this particular case ...
marketing material, the marketing team would give approval for the text
included in document/materials. Marketing text is not the area of
expertise of the design team.

It goes without saying that in both these cases the TDF membership is
involved through their participation in these groups giving validity to
the approval process of both groups.

So, in this particular case, dealing with the 3rd party icons, it would
seem to me, the design team should be given mandate of assuring the
proper usage of these icons

On this one point - yes I agree.

This was the point in putting up a temporary warning note on the wiki page until we sort out the licensing stipulations. We need to either find a way to conform or, as you suggested, contact them and try to negotiate a more friendly use of their icon set if possible. I agree that someone from the TDF should be involved in negotiating this.
