Well, for prior organizations we haven't allowed having more than one 
liaison for *any* organization to avoid confusion.  Why would OpenWRT be 
different?  One of the two needs to be the main liaison, and the other 
an alternate.

For replacement of the liaisons, their procedure isn't any more muddy 
than anyone else's.  We can live with it.

We don't want to repeat past mistakes with new affiliates.
