I wrote the proposal based on conversations I had with Christian and
also Jim, and Christian and several others gave input.
Backroom work will happen (conversations and decisions both). But it
cannot be the only thing that drives the open source project.

You have a very different perspective on a Steering Group. It's not a
mechanism for exclusion but for *inclusion*. The steering group should
care about the different interests in our community and actively balance
them and consult them, and channel existing energies allowing them to
result in something instead of dissipate.
Of course you seem to say this all depends on the people in the steering
group and that in practice this won't happen. This is something we'll
need to try to find out, right?
