Hi :)
I don't know how this is all going to work and there are likely to be changes 
after the elections anyway.  Perhaps the named person could be a Team Leader 
delegating some of the work to other agreed people.  In co-operatives that i 
have worked in the SC would need to be voted-in first.  Then the SC would 
delegate areas of responsibility to various groups such as "Marketing" and 
decide how people would be elected or appointed within those groups.  Ideally 
(imo) the groups would be allowed to choose a suitable way for themselves 
(within reason).  Initially groups would communicate with SC about what area 
they need to be in control of and which they only need to communicate with.  For 
example they might decide that the Design sub-group is better under a different 
group's control but is a sub-group they might want to have a few members in so 
that communications are smoother.  There are a lot of issues here that might 
change until TDF settle on something that works more smoothly.  

If I had to invent something, it would be along the lines of a Communications Working Group that 
was open to membership from anyone who would agree to its rules (confidentiality until release, 
have media training, communicate only the group consensus as TDF's position, for example). I would 
then use the mail alias of that Working Group as the press contact on any releases, and have the 
most qualified member pick up each inbound request.
