Nobody wants veto powers for the chairmen afaics. If someone (chairmen
or not) really doesn't like something and would like to veto it then I'd
say he should try to convince a higher Committee (FESCo in this case) to
revisit the issue.

Yes, the chairmen afaics will handle the schedule and coordinate the
meetings as someone has to do that. But "someone" did that until now,
too -- just now we have some one that is *responsible* that it gets done

Apart from this we simply look how it evolves and define or undefine the
job as needed. And, as I said, the Steering Committee can simply "fire"
the chair at any time.
