I did the same thing (as did Allison and Matt), and had the same problem
getting enough interviewer resources.  Had I not had the liasons, a number of
interviews might not have been possible.

I want to emphasize that I never planned to have the liason lead or take
notes from an interview; but during nomcom discussion there might have been
one or two times when the liason had a memory that helped clarify or put into
better context what was said.
