> 3 individuals on the panel (keep it small and nimble):
> 1 from ARIN staff
> 1 AC member selected by the AC
> 1 from academia selected by the board (specifically not affiliated
> with an IR or any ARIN members)

No ARIN staff. No AC members.
ARIN already has the expert opinions of all of its staff, as well
as the expert opinions of all of its AC members. No need to elevate
one of these above the others.

If there is to be some kind of panel giving opinions into the process,
then we need to maximize external inputs.
1 academic with PhD and teaching position at a university
1 network manager from non profit sector
1 network manager from large enterprise
1 person connected with SBA or SCORE
1 technology journalist

No former ARIN staff or AC or BoT

In general, the idea of getting a panel to come up with a solution,
followed by a vote seems to be a workable and interesting idea as
long as it has a time limit which fits between two ARIN meetings.
