Here's another way of thinking about it. You could view 'root access'
in this context as 'root access to the *organisation*' - the power to
do anything to the organisation.

And that's what the Steering Committee would have. It doesn't
matter what the bright idea you have is, if you can't convince
the Steering Committee who represent the organisation as
a whole and hold its authority, then it won't happen.

Of course, whoever has root access to the boxes answers to
the Steering Committee, which can remove or grant root access
as appropriate.
