Is this really a suitable way of making a panel of experts?   What
criteria would they be required to use in determining if something is
an eligible transition technology, and  how do we determine how much
space  is warranted to be needed to use the technology, AND  what
organization(s) can apply.....
as in,  the requirements/justifications  required to use a transition
technology  ?

So  why not just let the   BoT  discuss any PPML discussion for
proposed uses,   appoint  some member of the AC or ARIN staff    to
propose when an old acceptable use should be removed,   and  to decide
 if a proposal has enough public input to be considered?

I would say,  public involvement removes the need for the 'panel'  to
be  a 'panel of experts',  since there are experts from the public who
would comment on the discussion.

Use the normal petition process,  to allow any decision 'not to
include' a proposal in what the BoT will consider, to be overridden by
the public.

Why allow private discussion,   what is the reason for allowing any
information at all
about how the 'list'  or other policy  was developed,  to be hidden
from the public?
