I dont think that its necessary to push Joerg out, I am not even sure if
that is possible with the current regulations, I believe not.
But I have read more than once doc stating he is leaving Maemo completely,
and I read those statements as a step-down.

As for Council, eV structure.

The normal way an eV works, is that the eV board is the responsible for the
eV and everything concerning members, rules, regulations, competions et al.
There is no 'council', other that the assembly, which basically consists of
all (active) members, who can use their votes to for example reject
proposals from the eV board.
That, in other terms, means that the members are the 'council'.
However, eV board is responsible for any actions, legally - tax reporting
and all. So the eV board can of course not carry out actions from the
members that would be illegal, or against constitution of the eV.

That doesnt mean we can not have two entities, but practically, it would
make much of a difference.
