Yes, i agree with your opinion, think therefore that will encourage local ambassadors to join together and, for this goal, i think each country will create a local wiki page with the reference of the spokesman, so that people (and medi) can find him immediatly.

Identifying and having a local regional representation is a good thing
and I dont think anyone here would disagree with that. However spanning
sub projects is not always worth the effort. If there is a active
regional community, nominate and have a leader among yourselves. That
can be a effective way.

In short, I agree with the need but not with the proposed method to meet
that need.
