We need equal participation for cores and non-cores alike.
Yeah I think we'd have to be careful about doing such a distinct split in participation between groups of people. I think the idea of some people full-access, others view-only will only be viable for those discussions where it was focused as an information dissemination event. eg 1 or a handful of people presenting some kind of proposal / problem, and then have the interactive discussion part in a more broadly inclusive arena like IRC or email. Or if there were discussions which are inherantly core only work already so that there wasn't an expectation of more general non-core attendance.
