I agree that relaying that type of impression would be negative, but I'm
not sure this specifically would do that. I think we've been good about
letting people step up to drive initiatives without being in an elected
position [0].

IMHO, I think the point Matt is making here is more about ensuring sure we
have people to do what we've agreed upon, as a community, as being mission
critical. Enablement is imperative, but no matter how good we are at it,
sometimes we really just needs hands to do the work.

[0] Of the six goals agreed upon since we've implemented champions in
Queens, five of them have been championed by non-TC members (Chandan
championed two, in back-to-back releases).
