For the sake of simplicity I'd suggest having a single 
stakeholders/advisory board, especially if we don't expect those boards 
to formally vote (one seat = one vote style) on motions. The main idea, 
as you mentioned, is to have clear contact points and get their feedback 
on priorities and direction.
