Turns out there's a handy draft published on the NCC's website, perhaps that could be a decent starting point. Similarly, this whole discussion was started by people raising understandable issues with the current selection procedure. I have my issues with the proposal draft for that one as it is, but 'as needed' seems a tad bit underspecified for a community that claims to be open and transparent. Jelte
