Thank you for clearing that up, kaio, and I'm glad we're on the same page

One of the strengths of the Ambassador program is that in many instances we
serve as a stepping stone for people who want to expand their talents in
other facets of the project. In my opinion, I think that's a good thing.
Ideally, people who start out as Ambassadors and end up also working in Docs
or Infrastructure or Testing don't forget their Ambassador "roots."

>> In other words, the multifunction aspect here is already in place and
