I don't think this line of questioning is

remain largely undefined and unconstrained by any set boundaries or

he can, as he has in the past, and as he will continue to for as long
as he is active.
This is not answering a question - it is avoiding one.
What's the question? If the question is, "What authority does Jimbo have?"
the answer is spelled out quite clearly: "He has no authority beyond that
which he has been granted implicitly through the trust of the community."
