this kludge is not very well thought out.
not that i am advocating, but an ietfish approach would be a requirement to have attended n previous meetings. makes more sense to me than this proposal. but ...
personally, i am not sure there is a real problem. so what if the old guard gets thrown out and some new unknown folk get elected. it might be a breath of fresh air. what actual damage could some fresh blood do? some radical change in apnic across the board just might benefit the internet.
[ historical note: this descends from the first taipei meeting, where there were no voting restrictions. a bunch of folk showed up just for the ec election and voted in an outsider, shock and horror! of course, all sorts of rules and restrictions to protect the old guard were immediately put in place. ]
