In order to actually achieve the diversity (“Internet service providers of all sizes and types (transit, access, etc.), Internet online and content industries, data center and cloud operators, educational and government networks, commercial firms, and civil society”) desired by the proposal, would it be appropriate to more formally identify those areas of the ecosystem where representation is desired and then have people run for seats representing those areas of the ecosystem? For example:
Seat 1: Small ISPs
Seat 2: Large ISPs
Seat 3: Data centers
Seat 4: CDNs
Seat 5: Educational & gov’t networks
Seat 6: Commerical
Seat 7: Civil Society
Seat 8: At large #1
Seat 9: At large #2
Seat 10: ARIN CEO

Not necessarily. If the body of knowledge of the existing 7-member board is grossly deficient given today's internet ecosystem, then perhaps three additional seats would not be an adequate increase. If the current board found that there were areas of expertise consistently requiring outside consultation then it should be fairly easy to identify at least a few areas of expertise that would be an asset to board's decision making. For example: technical expertise, legal expertise, expertise in governmental matters, etc.

This is a “known unknowns” question, right?
