    I can see how it could go that way.  But I can also see how
Launchpad can act as a filter between editors and contributors.  One
doesn't HAVE to accept contributors to the ranks of the team.  However,
those that are or will be long time contributors might just as well be
called editors.  And, as with any team, there can be leadership, and
controls on those who have been welcomed to the ranks of editor.  I
think, perhaps, at this time there's little evidence that it is being
abused or needs to be changed.
