Istio is highlighting some benefits of an SC model

1. Applies across whole 'broad' project not just repo level
2. Encourages diversity via non coding SC members, eg as Dan says you
can also write .md files
3. Focus on overall direction on behalf of end users and community
(avoiding the open core problems we see in other cases) 
The Istio SC is a serious political problem, and the project has ongoing
governance issues. Why would we want to emulate this with CNCF projects?

An SC can be useful to a project that is large enough to warrant it, but
it isn't a cure for projects with problematic governance. A project
with broken governance will just end up with a broken SC.
