That's basically what we are doing, and what I put in the charter document: we put out the call, but start work right away. I think them CFCs are polite, is all - want to give people a chance to speak up, show support, and volunteer to contribute… but if we find that people don't really care for the CFCs, we can do away with them.  
Also, I picked up the bad habit of CfC's from hanging out with you and Artb in WebApps, so you only have yourselves to blame!
