Correct! You missed the rationale in the summary, though :-)

* There is a goal that leadership comes from multiple people (and also
not from people at a single company, and only as allowed by the
community, and ...).
* There is a goal that who lead can change over time.
* There is a goal that it is easy for new people to feel included and
get involved.
* There is quite a bit more emphasis on
leadership-that-is-not-software-development at the ASF and especially
during incubation.

And such and so forth. The terminology (not) in use tends to help just
a little bit to work towards those goals.

...just a little bit, though, most of it is still up to you! :)
