That's a valid point. However, the steering group was thought of with
having "fail over" in mind so that few people would know about the tasks
at hand and can jump in for each other (in a coordinated fashion).

Also, the steering group idea doesn't exclude the option of appointing
individual people for certain jobs.

However, the group should be able to make a better job at keeping things
in flow and focused.

As much as I prefer discussing with people in real life, there is the
notion of "no backroom conversations" WRT to driving development of an
open source project.

Having major issues resolved in RL meetings will exclude all those whose
schedules don't match and those who can't afford to travel to Far Far
