To me, that seems like a no-brainer. I'd take it one step farther and take out bishoprics from the equation, leaving, at most, one high councilor to oversee the singles programs. But the actual single rep (who is single BTW) is the one actually in charge. Period.
One benefit that would arise from YSA wards being abolished would be that they wouldn't constantly be hurting for membership to fill leadership callings. Rather than having to piece together a EQP, RSP, SSP, and WML from people who have little idea what they're doing, you free up slots and the people who would be stuffed into them to do other things. YSAs would benefit greatly from more opportunities to interact with people from all walks of life instead of "same boat" and "bishopric". Just throw on meaningful activities (most FHEs suck because it's done by the same two people every week) and YSA reps and you're golden. Put the activities on a rotation (and give them an actual budget to work with) and each ward rep only has to plan one thing a month to have two activities per week. I'd probably also make FHE separate from those two activities and emphasize that all activities are, in fact, optional.
At any rate, this is off topic.
I think we can all agree that the Brethren are out of touch and are answering with standard PR non-answers to difficult questions.
