There must be some motivated and well respected community
member that could take on this task and participate in the admin
group, without it taking resources from development. I think I know
at least one person. (Not me.)

I suggest that you in the admin group make a list of interesting
and potentially interested people, ask them privately and if no
one accepts, announce the opportunity here and we can all have
a go at it.

I suppose it won't happen unless you open up to a few more good people.

People can hurt the project, run off with the money, taint the code
with GPL or the leaked source of BeOS, and what not, but not letting
people in hurts the project too.
