Mainly I disagree with actively looking for an additional editor  
candidate with the requirement that they lack any affiliation with  
WHATWG. If someone is nominated then we could consider their  
candidacy in addition to or in place of the current nominees. But  
this should be based on their actual qualifications and ability to  
work with other potential editors, not nonaffiliation with particular  
standards groups.
