I think we should consider ourselves lucky that we have two excellent  
candidates for editor and not push our luck by trying to add a third.  
I especially don't want to keep delaying the group's work by  
continuing to look for more candidates.

I can assure you that Dave and Ian don't always agree on everything.  
WHATWG is a very loose association. Ian and Dave are also both  
members of the CSS Working Group, and we probably don't think that is  
a faction that must not be overrepresented. WHATWG is not any more  
monolithic in point of view than CSS WG.

Since one of the co-chairs is a Microsoft employee, I don't think  
they particularly need any more representation or influence.
