Yes absolutely, in the end we need to have rational selection criteria, 
evaluate the candidates against real-world feedback etc. And those 
requirements will be the first deliverable to be worked on.

Having said this I see no harm in talking about potential solutions so 
that the charter can come up with a framework that is actually 
actionable. As Jeremy stated earlier [1], a group that is too unfocused 
and generic may not be successful. Those who are not interested in 
hearing about the specific solutions can move my emails into their spam 
folder for now ;)
