Sorry, not really the correct list for this suggestion, but I am unable to cope with too many lists by now:-).

This sounds like an organisation that could well be a good location for an organisation/project that will support a highly co-ordinated and professional approach to all the “clearly non-commercial” parts of TeX-related software development.  However, this would also require that all the “principal active, TeX-related developers and groups” can co-operate in running this group — which May well be a Good Thing in itself. 

It appears to me that this organisation is good place to “gain reputation” and get supervision and other practical, hard-nosed support for projects that are not intended to be commercialised (monetised) at any stage.

It therefore, importanty, provides a trusted place for Grantors to put their money.  Even though TUG is tax-exempt, I would not put them in my last will and testament if I wanted to leave money for future TeX software development!  Would you?
