same issue has come up repeatedly in some of the other non-mainstream 
circles i run in.  in all cases, including here, the answer is the 
same.  being a responsible party / officer carries with it a higher 
than normal profile by the nature of the job. 

this is something that should be understood by common sense and
something that all parties must accept along with the duties
involved in the position.  per your comments, if the individuals 
don't wish this higher than normal profile, then they should not 
persue these positions.

for the truely paranoid, there is no reason that their actual name be 
used, additional (temporary) phone lines are available to protect 
their primary one, and any number of email forwarding services exist.
