Right, I'm not aware of any other page like; if any existed it was
well before my time.  :)

It's not so much the need for an official bindings person, as it is
that we need at least one person on the team that is able to approve
freeze break requests (with the rest of us kind of just dog-piling and
say "well, Murray said okay, so I'll give 2 of 2" -- though it'd be
better if 2 of us that felt more confident approving such requests),
and who knows the rules for that release set and has sufficient
experience to help module authors with questions about what the rules
mean and so forth.

I've tried a little to become more qualified in that area, but quite
frankly I don't feel comfortable enough to handle such requests and
queries unless they are very simple ones.  (Granted, I'm not real
comfortable handling freeze break requests for desktop or platform
modules either.  It's just the  way things work that maintainers are
the experts and we're just trying to make sure the overall picture
looks safe and a little more uniform--but there's still a level of
difference between those sets and bindings for me)

But, as for your other question, it may make sense to have someone in
charge of each moduleset that does extra stuff to push it forward.  I
think Jeff was advocating this and had some ideas for it.  I'm not
completely sure what the tasks involved for such positions would be,
