(Sorry for the late feedback but I was OOO for the last two weeks).

The areas I intend to expend some level of energy are (in order as 
presented in version [1]):

* Consortium priorities; maximizing resource usage

* What are the most important priorities for the Web and W3C

* Member survey as well as a Public survey

* Long-term financial stability

* Membership fee reduction

* The "graveyard of TR"

* Broader industry collaboration on the Open Web Platform

* Best Practices that enable making standards consistent from a 
technical and strategic point of view

Re items related to updating Consortium processes, I consider 
changes/hacks to the Process Document (PD) mostly "make work" unless 
they are directly related to addressing the issues above. For example, 
only make changes that substantially reduce the amount of resources 
needed to support the Consortium's activities.

Comments on the above are of course welcome and encouraged but for 
Public replies, rather than use public-w3process, I think the new 
public-openw3C list [2] is more appropriate.
