Very well said Philip.  Your point applies to the GNSO as well.
Selecting Council reps primarily for geo-diversity and competence second
may give us less than desirable results in terms of effectiveness.  That
is why I think we need to explore ways of allowing some flexibility that
balances these two goals.
