Sugar Labs is a voluntary organisation with membership that shifts and
changes over time.  Members can join at any time, members can leave at
any time.  Members cannot be compelled to work in the way you
describe.  The only influence the board can have is to remove barriers
to projects, and there are very few barriers the board can control.

I am not a Sugar Labs member because of a conflict of interest.  So
you don't have to convince me.  But if I were a member, I'd be puzzled
as to how you could implement your belief.  It sounds impossible to
achieve without changing the nature of membership.
