Well my working assumption was that we were talking about people with
the appropriate domain knowledge who are focused primarily on standing
up the QA infrastructure.

(as opposed to designated points-of-contact within the individual
project teams who would be the first port of call for the QA/infra/doc
folks if they needed a project-specific perspective on some live issue)
That said however, I agree that it would be useful for the QA/infra/doc
teams to know who in each project is most domain-knowledgeable when they
need to reach out about a project-specific issue.
