voting in gerrit: merge at +3? (+2+1 / +1+1+1)

I second this: rules have to be enforced by technical means whenever
possible. Social conventions simply don't scale: if we let people just
merge it arbitrary than there'll be never-ending stream of "I know I
shouldn't have but..." with all sorts of "buts" (I was in a hurry, I was
about to leave, I needed for X, etc).
It might work fine in a close-knit group but I think the goal is to grow
the number of contributions by making it as effortlessly as possible.
It's always better than newcomers simply can't do the wrong thing rather
than constantly reminding them what is right thing, on which wiki (which
inevitably will get outdated) they can read about it etc.
Also, I disagree that setting up gerrit this way is a "hack": making
votes additive is described in official documentation for gerrit. It's
supported by upstream - there's nothing hackish about it.
