your point about diversity and independence of any individual
organization/company is good - this is one of the key strengths of open source
software. It's exactly because of this that OpenACS is still flourishing today
which is pretty amazing if you consider that the companies that created much of
our toolkit are no longer around.
Given that Lars Pind, Don Baccus, and Jeff Davis all represent different
companies or organizations we already have some diversity. I could imagine that
those three people will start up the core team and then a couple more may be
elected in by the community. Those people are likely to come from different
companies, bee free lancers, or hobby programmers.
