As long as the communities are open to anyone in the larger community, this
is not only healthy but inevitable.

For me it is very welcome. One reason I chose a larger cohousing community
is that I wanted a community where I didn't have to be involved in
everything all the time. In a small community it is harder when a few are
sitting something out -- there are not enough people to have small clusters.
You probably have to have a more homogeneous group.

In a large group, I enjoy having a bunch of people doing things that I can
benefit from but not participate in. I wouldn't want to feel closed out,
