That's not the role of the Framework Team.

If every aspect of Plone that isn't code (documentation, UI, translations,  
etc) should have a mandated seat on the framework team, there wouldn't be  
many programmers left. The role of the Framework Team is to recommend to  
the release manager what parts should be included in the upcoming release,  
*including* UI, documentation and other concerns, with a special eye on  
implementation, scalability and future maintainability.

The UI team, documentation team and others can (and should!) raise any  
issues along the way, as well as help address these. The framework team  
has an advisory role to the release manager — the UI/docs team should  
ideally execute in addition to identifying any issues.

The fact that the vote for the new team by the old members was unanimous  
indicates to me that we have a recognized, skilled, and appropriate team  
for the upcoming 4.0 release.

Debating this is wasting time at this point. You're entitled to your  
opinion, but the established process has been followed, and an  
overwhelming majority seems to be very happy with the new team.
