Question for Andreas Schuldei and Branden Robinson

Most of the current members of Project Scud appear to be employed by
companies whose primary business is Debian, or heavily depend on Debian
in their line of work:

  Andreas Schuldei, employed by Skolelinux to work on Debian-edu; a
  major Debian derivative.

  Branden Robinson, employed by Progeny, a company who provide both a
  Debian derivative and support contracts for Debian.

  Steve Langasek, works for a company who are rumoured to be producing
  something heavily Debian dependant.

  Bdale Garbee, CTO of HP Linux who use Debian for testing and have
  their own "Carrier Grade" derivative.

Was this intentional?  If it was, would membership of Project Scud be
open to a representative from each of the other major Debian derivatives
and companies such as Adamantix, Linspire, Ubuntu, UserLinux, Xandros,
etc.  Perhaps in a manner similar to the GNOME council of the same type.

If it wasn't intentional, are you not worried that you could either be
influenced by your employers to direct Debian according to their wishes
or be perceived to be doing so?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
