Ability for maintainers to update own ports

Greetings all,

Neglecting implementation details, has anybody considered the
possibility of allowing MAINTAINERs who don't have commit privileges to
somehow commit updates to ports they maintain?

Where do people see problems lie with such an idea? (Eg. keeping the
tree sane, controlling access, vetting changes etc)

I feel that a well thought out and implemented system could be highly
beneficial to everyone, reducing the number of ports PRs and letting
port updates flow through a little faster.

Pick it to bits, if there are solutions I want to find them :)
