Two things:
1. Haven't the frontend people or any people, really, been encouraged to
do just that?
2. With the overlap in participation currently (which I expect will
continue unless we limit membership), isn't it fair to say that there is
representation all around?
3. It has been argued and I think it's a fair point that too many people
for input can slow things down.

I don't know what the resolution is here but I guess I'm sort of
challenging your assertion on those points. I'm not sure that either one
of us is presenting a completely accurate picture. Anyone else care to
weigh in?
