Oh sure, but that's not just the PTL's job. That's everyone's job. Don't 
you think?

I did that before I was the PTL and will continue to do it after I'm no 
longer the PTL. And if anyone in the (especially) the core or wider Heat 
team sees an opportunity to step in and moderate a disagreement I 
certainly expect them to take it and not wait for me to step in.

I'm not calling for no leadership here - I'm calling for leadership from 
_everyone_, not just from one person who holds a particular role.
