This works for me, too. FWIW.
Actually, I think there is a slightly better way, somehow analagous
to the 'petition period' used by the ISOC NomCom process.
On day N, publish the list of willing nominees so far and invite
nominations before day N+14.
On day N+28, publish the final list of willing nominees and invite
This would, if we wanted to publish the names, give 2 weeks for
nominations and another 2 weeks to check their willingness to serve.
