We talk at cross-purposes.
This sort discussion style on the mailing list is not fruitful. Since
you are a member of the Mgmt board, please bring it up on the next
Consortium meeting. A common table and discussion over some beverage
seems a more appropriate way.
Since you addressed it to me, I'll answer your last question:

The long version:
There are zero full-time persons involved in linuxaudio.org. There's
maybe 0.2 persons taking care of the LAO online infrastructure (we're
less than a handful and we've all got day-time-jobs, family, a life and
other projects..). Going [semi-]commercial with no team will be disastrous.
The most active parts of LAO are the email-lists, followed by a group of
dedicated individuals who volunteer to be wiki editors and LAC
organizers - the motivation of LAO contributors and users is quite
diverse and it'd be too easy to forget where we came from.
