This is more along the lines of what I've been thinking about. If the
VC is a community-based structure, and does not change the governance
structure of the foundation, it's a moot point entirely. Th VC
shouldn't change the structure of the foundation any more then the
chapcom or the languages subcommittee or any other advisory committee
do. If terminology is a problem, perhaps we should rename it to
something more benign, like "volunteer committee", or "community
advisory board" or something.
