I find this a little odd, because the word literally means "most
important or best", and I don't think that's actually what we mean.

My preference would be to not use this label for FADs. If we want to
keep using the word, let's call Flock _the_ premier global Fedora
event, and FUDCons premier regional events. I don't think we even need
a special term for FADs.

And, I think *some* FADs make sense from the central community budget
(whether we call that the Council budget or something else), while
others — like the ambassadors' planning FADs — make sense to me to be
part of the regional budgets directly.

This implies regionalizing some things which have not been
traditionally in the ambassadors scope — for example, a translation
activity day focused a language or languages of a region might be best
planned and organized within that region.
