I think that stating their qualifications is a good idea, but shouldn't be a requirement. Registering people as candidates for the sole purpose of endorsing someone else seems like a very bad idea. If we really want to allow public endorsements (and I see no reason not to allow them), perhaps there should be an open discussion period such as the one during ARIN meetings for proposals that endorsers and detractors can use to discuss the merits of a particular candidate?
