I find myself agreeing with Kushal here.
Being an ambassador implies a sense of "special loyalty" to the
distribution and playing a role as an advocate for the overall success

For one of "our" advocates to also be an advocate for our biggest
competitors might put the loyalty aspect into question.
But then again, maybe I am wrong?
I'm both a Fedora and openSUSE ambassador. When I'm representing Fedora,
I advocate Fedora. When I wear my openSUSE hat I advocate openSUSE. When
I'm not officially representing Fedora or openSUSE at an event, I route
people to the distro which covers their needs best (including Fedora
(and related), openSUSE (and related), Debian (&derivatives), Gentoo and
It's more important to convert people from the "dark side" to open
source than to a specific distro which disappoints them as it does not
meet their expectations.
