I'd suggest a much stronger reason to have people with defined
responsibilities. If you know it is your task then you are most likely to
do it, otherwise nobody will take individual responsibility and it might
not get done (or, worse, two or more of you try to arrange it and it just
looks so unprofessional at the other end!) I recall a poem about "everyone
thought someone would do it, etc (googled and copied below!)
Once upon a time...
Once upon a time there were three people;
Everyone, Someone and No-one.
once, there had to be an important thing to be done.
Everyone was asked to do this.
However, Everyone thought Someone would do it.
and although Everyone could do it, No-one did it!
because of this, Someone got mad,
because it was the task of Everyone,
but now No-one did it!
Everyone thought that Someone could do it,
but No-one realised,
that not Everyone would do it.
at the end Everyone blamed Someone because No-one did what Everyone could
