It is not. After further research and reflection it's interesting, but
there are reasons. The concise point is some candidates aren't as close to
the network as others as an effect of this approach; most of us prefer that
we're able to consider people for leadership positions from those who are
among us. Circling policy wonks inserted as leaders is not the same thing.
If we can't get the opportunity for our own to take leadership permissions
we disconnect the organization from the realities of network operator.
Policies. Fees. Etc. If a network operator can't make the ballot then the
system is broken as is the topic of the thread.

Warm regards,
