I agree with this. We should have one person that we are accountable to.
That person is accountable to their project. If the project wishes to
have a "backup" liaison that is fine. In fact PostgreSQL.Org has done
that in the past. I was unavailable for a short time so I delegated to
Robert Treat who is the board advisor for PostgreSQL.Org.

We would? I would expect that the Debian project would deal with its own
internal problem and the governing body of Debian would respond back.
