For routine bug fixes, cleanups, fixes for changes to generic code or 
otherwise for consistency with other architectures and fixes for broken 
build, I'd be happy to treat silence as consensus in the case of orphaned 
architectures.  For more substantial changes including any new optimized 
functions, I think we should expect actual review or the submitter 
stepping forward as a new architecture maintainer and getting consensus 
for that role.
