Sebastian,

You are suggesting that devrel/council members don't know of the 
conflict of interests beforehand and/or that they fail to disqualify 
themselves from an active part in either the devrel or council part of 
the proceedings. I admit that the possibility exists under present 
rules.

Enforced division of responsibility can be a good thing in places but 
I'm not convinced that this is one of those places. That said, I would 
not want devrel to become a subset of council, nor council to become a 
subset of devrel.  Its just for that reason that the Foundation bylaws 
forbid any individual serving as a trustee and on council at the same 
time.  Maybe I am coming round to supporting your view after all.
