Please explain 'assimilate' in this context.

From the channel name it sounds like it only covers video.
There is also #demudi - concerned with the Debian Multimedia Distribution 
(&active) and #fave which was set up for organising a freesoftware audio 
visual event in the UK last year (sleeping). If we find we have a lot of 
business and enthusiastic IRCers it might be worth setting up a dedicated 
channel, but right now there doesn't really seem to be the need. Certainly 
all groups using Debian for multimedia work should be consulted. I guess this 
is your meaning.

A wiki could be useful for the more persistent kind of conversation needed to 
pull the Debian Multimedia Policy together
