I guess it makes me uncomfortable (quite uncomfortable, in fact) to

No, it is not going to be organized this way. On the contrary, the idea
is to give hackers as most power as possible. Of course, companies are
welcome, but as one of the goal for the EU foundation is to protect
the (EU) Gnome community, (individual) companies must have a
limited power in the foundation.
