In principle - yes (and in this case I believe I am speaking for the PPMC).

The precise details need to be agreed, but Michaels proposal of " a
three-way owner / moderator structure with Dennis, Rob and myself
providing some spectrum of balance. It would of course help to have
the previous subscriber list available to pre-populate it, but that
can be inferred from the archives if necessary."

Is a great place to start. I'm not sure if those individuals wish to
take on this responsibility, I don't want to speak for them.

If anyone else in the AOOo community would like to propose themselves
now is a good time.
