Oh, I didn't get to this earlier because I replied from my mobile device.

Cimon, seriously give me a pen and I'll write the first sentence.  I'm one
for stepping up to the plate.  Let's start a meta page where people can
register thoughts/complaints/grievances/joy/sorry to WMF staff.  If it is a
serious concern, the staff can respond after someone consults with them and
receive either a you can handle it or I can handle it response.  How would
selection go?  I dunno.  But it would facilitate communication issues, and
if you have enough experience working with staffers it should be an easy
thing.  I can shoot about all of the ones that matter in the programs
department an email and get a quick response.  You could too.  So could
everyone on this list, for the most part.  If you really want to do this,
I'm game and I'm sure others are as well.

...'cept that pesky MZMcBride :)
