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.

maybe this makes it a bit more clear:

For the TDF as (soon to be) legal entity, we need a few named people who are allowed to speak on behalf of the entity. I am open to anyone joining the group who is qualified, but I would propose indeed we make a media training first for those people. Either face to face in Paris, or for those who cannot attend, via Skype/phone.

For LibreOffice as a project and community, and not TDF as legal entity, I am currently working on having a marketeer network, with dedicated contact people in various countries. I've talked about that during the latest marketing conference call, and also presented this to the lists already. I would like to have several contact people in each country, who are resonsible for press contacts, drafting and translating PRs and the like.

Does that sound like what people have in mind?
