I also have concerns about this, but for reasons I think are entirely
different from the one behind Chaals' objection.

1. the last sentence is unclear. I could understand the intent if it
    meant "the next election for the extra seat under consideration" but
    if that's really any election, it means we're back to the previous
    situation where a TAG member has to resign at some point to comply
    with rules we found counter-productive and over-rigid enough to
    update them. In short, this does not solve the issue.

2. this does not change the center of gravity of the TAG. The TAG is
    a group of individuals that we all value for their expertise, not
    a group of employees of their employers. As a matter of fact, they
    remain on the TAG if they become unaffiliated...

Sorry if my comments above arrive late, I was burried under work and
then sick.
