Personally I'd support your view - we are putting 
all these requirements and spending a lot of time
talking about community - we should practice
what we preach :>.

Having said that - the flip side is that you and
Steve are the two people who *have* put in a lot
of effort into this to date.  There might not be
any code base patches that you have submitted, but
there is a *lot* of work been done helping Cliff
and the team getting to this point.

An open question to xmlbeans-dev - what do the 
initial 9 committers think?
