OK, you have a point. However, as long as one of the teams (e.g. FD) stops
duplicating the same task, and the other one is added more members, the result
should be the same. Of course it may not be that easy to find new victims for
the position...


P.S.: not saying the FD or DAM are doing a bad job, it's just that duplicating
the same task seems like a wasted effort to my eyes
