If a PD tree falls in the forest....

Mountainrunner Matt Armstrong pointed out the following statistics:
During the Obama Administration, the Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy (and PA) office has been vacant 20.4% of the time
During the Bush Administrations, the Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy ( and PA) office was vacant 37.2% of the time
This leads me to ask a reductio ad absurdum question: the current Undersec position is empty (save for an able acting), would anyone notice if it remained that way?  More importantly: would it matter?
