Since nobody else is feeling inspired to respond, I'll respond to
myself but whereas the original message was written with my TC hat,
this one is not. Perhaps the TC is not doing what it should be
doing, nor is it constituted to enable that.

Since there is a significant and friction creating division of power
and leadership between the TC and PTLs, what would it be like if we
required half or more of the TC be elected from PTLs? Then the
"providing the technical leadership" aspect of the TC mission [3]
would be vested with the people who also have some responsibility for
executing on that leadership.

That would be like something we had before, but now there are many
more PTLs.
