I was not aware of that. Maybe the forum were that discussion occured
also need someone to handle communication issues ?

Only if you do not regard communicating as "productive work".
If three people ask the same thing and one DSA answer the first time,
this person will be able to answer the two next time.  Maybe this person
will reach a higher level of clue than the average developer and be able
to answer some other times without "nagging" the DSA.

Anyway it would be better than doing nothing.
