True. The current configuration, however, has the Fireplace grouped with polycentric boards, also.
I view the two as working together as both involve sharing what's happening in life, whether it involves relationships or not.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
