Subject: RE: [oasis-member-discuss] FW: Possible change to TC voting rules - input requested

I'm not completely following what you are saying here?  Why should we be eliminating committee debate?
Having just one company - one vote - is likely to mean that companies invest LESS effort in committees - and surely that is a bad thing?  Also bad is the notion that company staff cannot freely work out differences in the TC process - or participate openly - for me that is the essense of what OASIS is - not fettered by company mandates - but open peer review. 
I'd hate to see the situation where we are institutionalizing companies working behind closed doors to determine their own position(s) and then bringing that to the TC.  Much better that the TC foster open debate.
OASIS is supposed to be a public process that maximizes participation  - how is what you are saying in alignment with that?
Thanks, DW

I think a one company one vote rule would be an improvement.  It would
help eliminate some amount of committee debate (especially among
representatives of the same company) and help streamline votes.
