It is however wrong to assume anyone WST or WFC is irreplaceable. They all came spparently from nowhere when the WST took over, and I am confident that should anyone leave there are more skilled candidates waiting to be called on.
That said, like I expect a manager to have all important positions covered, so should the board.
Have to say that the WFC board did not 'Come from nowhere' as you suggest. The core were WST board members for a good few years and one was key in managing the WST web site. Indeed some were involved during the years of the troubles and that goes back a good while.
The same people have been fairly constant on the WST board as well.
