But coordinating between counties and projects is a lot of work for a single
person. What about saying that each project/company uses their nominated
person on the board of LinuxAudio to do all this discussion? Then everyone
involved is recognised and seen as being "responsible" at least.

I don't think you'll get much joy trying to impose a structure on how either
the hardware or the work could be distributed. It's up to people to work as
they feel like it - if they can get their hands on the hardware then and
there then that'll help it out. I think the approach here has to be
pragmatic as in many cases if the interested developer wants some hardware
they can always buy it if they can afford it or just approach the vendor
directly for loan stuff. It'd be nice if LinuxAudio.org helped with this
process rather than tried to impose a regime to it - that's probably not what
you meant but that's what it sounds like.
