I really don't understand the issue. We should care about something only if we're directly involved: what a WiR needs to be clear for us so that 1) institutions ask possible things, 2) we know what to offer and ask and who to propose. If we're not involved in the preparation of the project nor in the selection of the person, there's no reason to care and if something goes wrong we'll just blame whoever is responsible. On the contrary, if we try to regulate things we can't control we'd fail to control them but we'd be blamed for failing because we would have asserted our duty to control them. --Nemo 12:15, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
