I disagree. The thinking group is the steering committee.

And frontend/thinking are completely different. How is me hacking around in
Photoshop for 50 hours any less "working" than someone customising open code
they've pulled from sourceforge?

Frontend/Backend are just split so that coders don't have to listen to IA
junk, and the designers don't have to listen to db gear. The thinking and
personalities are, I think, different enough to warrant some sense of
separation at least.
