I don't think that word is appropriate: "ligatio" is more the act of
binding, instead of the bound person. A much more better word is
probably "legatus", that actually means "ambassador" (although for a
slightly different reason: it would mean that the
legatus/liaison/whatever is bound to the project he's part of, not that
he serves as binding between the project and SPI).

BTW, I would oppose the use of a Latin word, because I really couldn't
stand with hearing it pronounced from English-speaking people (probably
I would write down that pronounciation as "leghedas", quite different
from "legatus"). :-)
