Let's be extremely disruptive in a new proposal that I think is simple
to explain, simple to deal with, preserves and IMHO increases AC's
representation, ensures contributors can really contribute, will get
rid of the "XYZ company is on the Advisory BOARD" issue:

1. the AB Chair is - usually - the W3C CEO
2. the TAG Chairs are appointed for 3 years by W3M just like WG Chairs;
   TimBL is the only permanent member of the TAG
3. AB and TAG Chairs can invite whoever they want for two years,
   there are no elections; these invitations are based
   on contributions, "operational" or technical.
4. these invitations need to be confirmed by a >50% AC vote so Chairs
   need to explain the rationale behind the invitation
5. there is no numerus clausus
6. after two years, Chairs can re-invite - or not - someone
   without having to go through the AC vote
7. Chairs can revoke an invitation in case of no contribution
