Can anyone see a flaw in that line of thinking...Key thing is a desire to properly reflect the importance of the role of the GSL within the district team as being the front line support to section leaders and in managing their Group etc. and able to draw on support from other members of the district team.
Any form of "management" depends upon there being competent managers in place in the first place, or even just managers!
I somehow can't see anyone changing the local practice of a lifetime and lifting a finger to help at another Group, never mind District.
The few GSLs we have in these parts are largely struggling to keep their own Groups afloat never mind manage a District.
I know one GSL who has his fingers badly burned by supporting District, he won't be doing that again any time soon. In fact, he is following Wayne's guidance on the subject.
