Initially I didn't feel that I wanted Steven as a PMC chair. I proposed 
others that I felt were more indicated to represent Cocoon.
Hmmm, represent != lead...

As time passed by, and as Steven started "acting" like a chair and doing 
boring admin stuff, I remembered how it was in Avalon, and how I managed 
to become chair of a project while being the least involved in its 
coding. Similary to me, Steven is bound a lot to Cocoon success, but 
much less in its coding.

Is it that it's natural for humans to create politicians?
(this is half a joke, half food for thought)

Cocoon needs coders, designers, docers and "admins". Steven does it also 
for work, and I think that probably he may do it well here too.
Look at Sam Ruby, he is IMHO good at managing Jakarta, but does he still 
code there?

A funny phrase strikes me now: "Do you want to leave Steven without 
anything to do? Heck, let him do something! ;-)"

So, based on the above reasoned thoughts, and on the fact that if Steven 
acts strangely we will kick his soul out ;-) , I vote +1 for Steven.
