[Ambassadors] inactive ambassadors, a proposed solution

There are two valid points, for one, the Ambassadorship guidelines are  
very open, more or less, do what you want.  On the other hand, how  
useful is it to have someone listed as an ambassador for an area when  
they are MIA?  And what kind of impression does it make if someone is  
trying to work with Fedora, but their Ambassador is non-responsive?   
Perhaps the Regional Ambassador setup that's been going on in NA is a  
step people can agree on? Or maybe having one Ambassador per area that  
is known by the community as being active to help maintain a list of  
other active ambassadors in their area?
