Steve indicated that Noel was filling all three those roles.

it doesn't. But the point is that the project needs to figure out
what person should be identified to handle a particular thing
themselves. For example, if a project needs a committer added,
someone from a project itself should contact root, not some
mentor/liason/other identified person.

The point is to make projects responsible for themselves from
the start, to the maximum extent possible. That includes the
identifying of persons/groups/etc.
