Absolutely. I'm not saying the cross-project project management should 
be restricted to or solely the responsibility of the TC. It's obvious 
there are people outside of the TC that have already been doing this - 
and no it's not always elected PTLs either. What I want is elected TC 
members to prioritize driving technical deliverables to completion based 
on ranked input from operators/users/SIGs over philosophical debates and 
politics/bureaucracy and help to complete the technical tasks if possible.
