There are advantages to appointing people over the current practice of
electing all seats at once. The current voting system doesn't not allow
one to express a desire for diversity in area's of expertise when voting.
Particularly for the board, where I prefer to see different areas of the
project represented. And to a lesser extent, I like to see some diversity
in the FESCO make up.
