I think there are much more dramatic changes necessary.
Look at the way things are done in RIPE, it is quite different.
The NomCom can be advisory, it doesn't have to be exclusionary.
Having 10 candidates for 7 openings is ridiculous and only acceptable if there is a dearth of qualified candidates.
We were told the NomCom has had to beat the bushes for qualified candidates.
Yet here we have plain evidence that things have changed and qualified candidates are being excluded.
Whether this is an idiosyncratic event or not, the vulnerability presented by maintaining a star-chamber empowered with filtering qualified candidates continues to exist.
The board/AC is quite capable of naming its own replacements via the workings of such a setup, whether or not that has ever been attempted.
We need a deeper discussion of the role of the NomCom and the risk of board capture it presents.

The current process for explanations balances privacy and transparency well, if and only if the NomCom chooses to provide an explanation: the explanation is private unless the candidate chooses to petition or publicly discuss being passed over, in which case ARIN does or can post it publicly.
The missing piece is actually requiring the NomCom to provide an explanation to the candidate if asked: right now it’s optional and they rarely do. IMO that is the most important change the Board should make to the nominations process. (There are some others I’d like to see as well, but they’re less essential.)
