I wouldn't say it's ambiguous, exactly, but I wouldn't necessarily have 
concluded that just from the language there.

Perhaps amending "They must get approval from the appropriate 
maintainers for changes elsewhere in the compiler" to "They must get 
approval from the appropriate maintainers for changes elsewhere in the 
compiler, and may check those in after approval" in the first paragraph 
under "Localized write permission" would be a useful clarification?
