Does the current PTL not have the ability to propose extra-atc's for
this reason?

Would a solution be for zigo to propose the people active in
to the governance repo (including himself) and the TC approve it.

This would give an electorate, and give Zigo the right to run as PTL.

I know the timescales would be short - but it might be workable.
