+1 to everything I have read so far.  I am truly encouraged by the
construction that has happened over the last few days!  I am amazed at how
cooperative everyone has been and how much has been hashed out.  Sorry I
have been out of the loop, I am also still in the process of moving and will
be in and out over the next couple of weeks.  Will throw my 2 cents in where
I can though.  Kudos!

IMO, change "Admin" to "SysAdmin" and you remove the label ambiguity.
+1 to the others.
Does development include CF, JS, IA, *and* visual design?

"Required" doesn't sound so good. "Encouraged" is better.
