Interesting, but TimBL + 3 + 9 = 13Ö so, TimBL, 3 nominated, 8 elected? or 13 members? 

Although this change would spoil a meme: http://w3cmemes.tumblr.com/post/92563302887/fwiw-w3cmemes-likes-the-number-9

What about a W3C member employing a member of the TAG nominating another person who is not an employee of that Member? (and I presume the member _would_ be able to nominate another employee(s) for the election where the current memberís term is expiring.)

Other than the above Iím in favor of these changes.
