I do, for the reasons mentioned in Michael's "key arguments".

I think it is both act as maintainer and make UI-related decisions.
It seems we're re-invented the Design Team.  I spoke with Gary Martin
and Bernie and, despite having lost the logs of my conversation with
Gary, my hazy recollection is that that they also came to this

With that in mind, I think we should just have more people actively
participate in the design team.  I'm interested, so have put my name
down on http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Design_Team/Contacts#Team_Members
.  I hope anyone else interested in being active, will do the same.
Michael Stone, Bernie Innocenti, I'm looking at you.

Gary, can you add / correct anything from our conversation?

Michael, is there anything I've misunderstood/misremembered about your
proposal?  Would you want the Design Team to adopt your "what does the
committee do"[1] responsibilities?
