I like this idea. Some projects might have existing context about a
particular goal built up before it's even proposed, others might not. I
think this will help share knowledge across the projects that understand
the goal with projects who might not be as familiar with it (even though
the community goal proposal process attempts to fix that).

Is the role of a goal "champion" limited to a single person? Can it be
distributed across multiple people pending actions are well communicated?
