I was recently giving a talk about
"Community based software development: The GRASS GIS project"

where I talked about "code habitats". This is going into the
same direction, I think that we could try to describe that
(on a separate Wiki page maybe). Of course the related people
must agree to that to become sentinel for their area. It
already works like that, only that newcomers don't know
about it.

Yes (while I don't think that we need to formally ratify it).
