To be clear, I don't agree with Dan's proposal, but I can live with it.

By contrast, I do agree with what Chaals has outlined[1].  There are 
even a few ways I would go further.

At the ASF, all board seats are up for reelection each year.  There are 
no seats reserved for nomination by the Directors.  Any stakeholder in 
the ASF can nominate themselves or as many people as they like.  The ASF 
uses the term "Member" for stakeholder, the closest equivalent at the 
W3C would at a minimum include all chairs.  We also use a proportional 
voting system, like Chaals has advocated.

With a proportional voting system coupled with every seat being up for 
election each year means that any influence a company could attempt to 
get would be temporary at best.
