Nice idea, somewhat hard to implement in an Open Source project I suspect.

Why not? The main project seems to be working perfectly well. We get
good software release, conferences and events are organised very
successfully. The only groups we have other than -core and funds are
ones where there is a distinct need for people we trust highly - eg.
committers and sysadmins.

Sometimes these some bike-shedding admittedly, but I think the freedom
in the way we work more than makes up for that.
