Seems fairly easy to judge the validity of that argument to me. ASk
the nomcom to ask volunteers whether they would have volunteered if
their name was gonig to be made public. Collect statistics.

For example, what you are likely to get are responses that indicate
whether the people would like to have nominations be public.
It does not guarantee -- and well might not even correlate with --
whether they really would run or not run, depending on the public-ness
of the nomination.
It is one thing to ask simple questions about simple issues. As soon as
we get into something more "political" the psychodynamics get messy.
