Sure, that its *current* primary focus, but this could be an addition.

I've also been thinking that long-term cross project changes should 
really also be guided by the foundation as well. Something akin to 
keeping long-term changes (ones that require years of work, such as 
cross project quota, or...) on track even when member companies come and 
go (because IMHO expecting otherwise leaves things halfway done, or not 
done at all).
