Yes, and then they all agree on something and make a powerpoint presentation 
to tell everyone else and then the discussion will start from the start again 
because everyone who wasn't involved finds flaws in the proposal, just 
doesn't like it, doesn't understand the reasoning for decissions and think 
it's all motivated by the hidden agenda of company BigFooBar.

Not to mention the inability of a project like KDE to agree on which person(s) 
would be suitable to represent KDE, the unwilingness of those persons to 
commit to such a board position and the months of discussion that that 
process would take.

So no, I don't think that's a good idea.
