Hey, I have not been able to contribute properly to this thread so far,
for personal issues, but I would like to leave my 5¢.

Since a few days ago, I am part of that team. I can say that I have been
thinking for a long while about a-h and its (lack of) powers, although I
still don't know what would be best for the future.

I believe that a-h is the natural starting point for dealing with these
issues. Currently, it can only give recommendations, but it is not void;
and I think it will be natural that the liaison with DAM, mailing list
operators, etc will only get stronger with time.

Dunno if we are at the point where a GR would be useful yet.
