I think you're wrong that Jimbo has any
ultimate power over Wikipedia.
Sure, if he wanted to ban someone he'd probably get away with it, but
only if the community accepted it.
You might want to reread the banning policy and
some recent Arbcom cases.
The view that Jimbo cannot ban people by fiat or dictate Wikipedia policy is
a minority one. Those who disagree can fork.
All that you say is true, but being written on a Wikipedia page does
not make it fact.
Common practice does make it fact, though. If you were reverting
Jimbo's edits on-wiki I'd give you about five minutes before you were
forced to make the decision between fork and leave. Most people do know
who's in charge here. Just because you claim it ain't so doesn't make
it not so.
