My first question: Why is your proposal restricted to QA and DevRel?

If there is noone active in a team, noone prevents other devs to join the team and vote themselves
for the lead. So even if there is no activity, it should be no problem to get activity, if someone
is interested to do the work. If the team is inactive and noone interested, the Council wont be able
to create any activity either, since they cannot force anyone to do something.

How is this specific to those 2 projects? Other projects do work the same way, so if you argument
this way, you should extend your proposal to all projects, not just QA and DevRel.
