The primary function of the multisigs is to enable contract upgrades in the [current] early phases of development.
As the contracts secured by the multisigs become battle-tested, Polygon will introduce the following optimizations and changes:
- move from multisigs to governance-controlled proxies;
- introduce timelocks;
- eventually remove all multisigs.
To be clear, the current multisigs cannot censor transactions like bridge transactions.
