I think more than one champion is helpful in some cases, but its dangerous
when you get more than two that each person thinks the other two will
handle things unless they are very communicative with one another :)

Somewhere else in this thread the idea of a committee and a chair was
mentioned which seems like a good way of handling it. One primary point of
contact that delegates to the others when they need help.
