I think Pine's message rather illustrates my point.  Pine seems to assume
that the alternative is between people experienced in the WMF ways of doing
things and novices.  Actually, there are plenty of people in the world with
experience in being trustees of non-proft organisations, and technical
expertise, and experience of knowledge representation and dissemination,
and the robustness to hold senior employees to account, who are not closely
connected with the WMF or its affiliates.  They mainly live a long way from
Silicon Valley, too.

For the avoidance of doubt, I have never been a candidate for, let alone
held, any position, paid or voluntary, in or related to the WMF or any
associated organisation.
