Thanks for the clarification.
One of the promises that we make in Scrum is focus and
commitment of every resources in delivering software
according to the customer priorities. And the customer
priorities are kept in the prioritized product backlog.
So this would be difficult, but maybe not impossible in
a traditional Scrum team.
Paul's sabbatical would be more feasible, as long as the
team member on sabbatical is _not_ in the Scrum team, he/she
may spend time doing something else without dragging
anyone with him/her,
