Actually I should clarify that statement. The role of the public is 
defined but what is missing is a statement of rights and how those 
rights can be protected from belligerent members. A legal contract 
signed by members and defining rules and penalties for non-compliance 
would be a step in that direction. I don't think the public are prepared 
to accept promises anymore.
