In addition... I think we aren't at the point where it's applicable, but
in considering the point where Guix's community grows big enough where
many people contributing to the main repository is untenable, I think a
move to something like what the Linux kernel does (different people
responsible for certain trees) might make sense.

I don't think we're there yet though.
