Yes please, this project needs an active leader. There is currently too 
much undecided topics.

As a reference please look how Fedora Project [1] is doing things.

There is a project leader (that I obviously think should be SteveC) and 
there is Fedora Board [2]

The board is composed of community elected members, and all members have 
a vote on who gets to be a Board member.

People who are running for elections put up a page on the wiki saying 
what they do for the project, and what is their "goal" to do when they 
become members of Board.

Board votes on all decisions and their decisions are final, but represent 
the consensus of most users.

Is there anything similar currently for OpenStreetMap project?
