I think there's an even simpler approach. Any member of the foundation
can nominate themselves as a UC member. In the past we've just kept
extending the deadline until someone steps up. So the *simplest* thing
to do is:
* Run the election process as usual. If any users want to step up they
are welcome to, and on past performance very likely to be acclaimed
without an election.
* If the deadline passes, the TC commits to finding enough warm bodies
who are foundation members to fill any remaining seats, including from
among its own members if necessary.
* The additional volunteers are acclaimed, and all members of the UC
elect a chair.
* We accept that to the extent that the UC has duties to perform and
ambassadors to help, this will largely remain un-done.
This eliminates the issue of actual users needing to submit themselves
to an election of all ATCs + AUCs in order to get a seat (which tbh
seems questionable under the bylaws, since not all ATCs are AUCs).
