I like this idea, and I would think it would be "one or more champions" in
some cases. I thought the uWSGI goal was a great example of the need for
this. There were some that understood this very well and what needed to
happen in each project. Some projects understood this too and were able to
make the change easily, while others had (have) to do a lot of catching up
to understand what needs to be done.

Rather than making a bunch of people take this time to get up to speed, I
think it makes a lot of sense to be able to have a few people just take
care of it. Or at least be a good, and identified, resource for others to
go to to understand what needs to be done.
