Given that the main issue at hand is that the is the feeling that either 
root or "the leader" abused their options this is the worst possible 

Regarding the external root as neutral party I think the main problem is 
that a root should be trusted, you don't trust unknown people and 
usually you know people because is involved in the project so we have a 
chicken egg problem ^^;
