The problem _for me_ is that the Council (at least in the way it was  
planned out, the elected council is certainly free to look into  
redefining its own purpose however it chooses) isn't really seeking to  
be representative of everything that makes up the "Maemo Community".  
Largely because this is both not feasible and, in some cases, not  
really desirable. So the differentiation between a "Maemo Community  
Council" and a "maemo.org Community Council" is important.

Perhaps I'm splitting hairs too much, and perhaps it's not as  
important an issue as I believe it is, but it certainly has seemed to  
cause some confusing already.[1]
