Would something like one year be a reasonable timeframe?  I'm not
suggesting that you have to go through non-committer status and wait for
committer/reviewer nominations again once you passed that threshold.  It's
more about temporarily suspending accounts and removing people from
committers.py to better access control things.

If they're coming back to WebKit, they can request their committerships and
reviewerships reinstated.
