I don't think capacity is the issue.

I think it's critical that we restrict the Ombudsman (which I always took
to refer to the function rather than the person(s) filling it) to the
defined roles outlined by Chris LaHatte in his recent email.

If we want an office that goes beyond those roles, we'll need to call it
something else and staff it accordingly.
