    Why do the senior developers on debian-legal constitute an elite cabal
who are completely unaccountable and the OSI board not?  Or, if the OSI
board does [constitute ...], why is it preferable to the folks in debian-legal?
    Of course, you also have to identify to whom they accountable.  I suspect
debian-legal would prove accountable to the debian developers is they 
really became capricious.  How would OSI be accountable to those developers?
