Hmm. I think the power to delegate things that can be delegated is reasonable to delegate.

On the one hand, there is a problem if, for example, the director goes on sabbatical, a long holiday in a busy period, etc.

On the other hand, Tim Berners-Lee is regularly presented by W3C as part of the value it offers, I think correctly. Which might imply that there are things that TimBL should not delegate - perhaps must not delegate. After all, there are very few things that happen in the standards process so rapidly that we coudn't wait a few extra weeks, or anticipate and have the director deal with before the deadline.

I've raised ISSUE-149 on this question, and I think it is important to resolve so I request that we open it.

cheers
