I see this and I also see you stating that there exist 'various levels 
of legal protection'. Maybe we should make those levels more explicit, for:

* contributors (patches)
* committers
* PMC - non-Members
* PMC - Members
* Members
* Directors (VPs et al.)
* Board

Gee - I assume many will be surprised seeing _that_ many categories 
existing within the Apache community. Also, given the fact committers 
might receive wide-ranging commmit rights within federations of 
non-topleveled projects (e.g. the future xml.a.o), I'm convinced there 
exists several superfluous levels or differences in this classification.

And I saw Sam already mentioning his inclination to be more liberal with 
this 'Member'-thing on some list/blog (don't know where anymore, 
information overload ;-)
