Yes, with or without https://github.com/w3c/w3process/pull/227 to address a concern from Ralph (but preferably with it).

This softens that change, saying “at least 9 and no more than 11”, and defines how the elections and so on run to manage that. While we’re in this area, it’s convenient to land this at the same time.

Yes

Yes. There's a minor editorial discussion still ongoing on one of the sentences. All currently discussed variants (including the one in the PR) are acceptable to me, and so would be merging before resolving that discussion, as it's just minor and editorial. Perfect is the enemy of good.

Yes.
