Hi :)
I don't know how this is all going to work and there are likely to be
after the elections anyway.  Perhaps the named person could be a Team
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"
decide how people would be elected or appointed within those groups.
(imo) the groups would be allowed to choose a suitable way for themselves
(within reason).  Initially groups would communicate with SC about what
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
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
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.

It seems fine. It's better than delegate someone who doesn't have the whole
community's approval.
