This insight -- along with Jimmy's earlier post about the Vatican wanting theologians to kick around subjects in order to explore all the implications before weighing in -- is a valuable corrective to a complaint I have heard leveled against the Catholic Church for being too top-down/centralized/hierarchical. It's not like the hierarchy does everything itself, or even wants to. The hierarchy has an essential buck-stops-here sort of role to play, certainly, but much of the dynamism and creativity in the church comes, and has always come, from the laity.
