Identifying and having a local regional representation is a good thing 
and I dont think anyone here would disagree with that. However spanning 
sub projects is not always worth the effort. If there is a active 
regional community, nominate and have a leader among yourselves. That 
can be a effective way.

In short, I agree with the need but not with the proposed method to meet 
that need.
