it is difficult and perhaps misleading to focus on defining the test 
leader.  Since volunteers are difficult to get - typically, you take who 
ever you can.  However, what does make sense is to focus on the tasks that 
need to be done and how to manage and organize the work.

I agree with Karl's list.  These are all part of creating a test suite.

Maybe not 'how to assign the tasks' but what is needed to do the tasks, 
what is involved, what skills are needed.  Some of this has been captured 
in the various Test Guidelines efforts and Wikis.  Having such a guide 
would be very helpful.
