I really don't want to get bogged down on low level details and
org charts right now.  That's creating too much bureaucracy where
it really isn't needed, and I don't think anyone wants that.

Dick's effort is discrete.  The vendor liason position[s] are
similarly discrete.  If they fall into a general "community relations"
banner, then fine.  The important part is that we've identified
aspects of community feedback that were heretofore ignored with
Perl5.  I really don't care if they fall into one working group or
seven.  I want to see that these points of view are addressed with Perl6.
