Actually, I just sent a courtesy copy to the membership committee so 
they would know I posted the draft.  I'm 99.9% certain that all of 
are on foundation-list, so I don't think it's necessary to copy 
membership gnome org on discussion.

The e-mail addresses listed are already in use, but that doesn't 
necessarily mean they couldn't change in the future.  (Forwarding 
aliases are a wonderful thing.)  

For what it's worth, though, IMHO, there's nothing wrong with equating and the Foundation.  The technical stuff which is excluded
from the board's authority remains with the individual maintainers, 
rather than any other organization. refers to the umbrella 
project, just as the GNOME Foundation does.
