This is correct, but it supports the question that the board has not a well defined control.
A good governance says that the responsible should be "proactive". What Chris is saying is perfect, I would not change a word. It means that it's not in conflict with what your saying, but he is already in more advanced step. He has been clear: if something is responsibility of WMF (and the term "responsibility" has a well defined meaning), it is responsibility of the board except the cases where the board has assigned this responsibility to another body. It does not mean "in charge of".
