Sure, I don't think anyone would disagree with that.

But can you help me understand how the community initiatives pages are  
"kneecapping" existing contributors? As far as I'm concerned, they're  
simply a public place to document all of the regular brainstorming/ 
organization that naturally happens over IRC, e-mail, and g.d.o anyway  
among people who already make up the 'teams' that Nedjo is proposing  
that we formalize in some way. If we add names to the pages, then we  
get the added benefit of said people being publicly identified, which  
helps them recruit others who share the same itch are looking for  
someone to collaborate with.

Seems win-win to me? Can you please enlighten me with a clue bat?
