Section 4.17 says:
If the Chair is unable to contact a voting volunteer, the Chair must repeat the random selection process in order to replace the unavailable volunteer. There should be at least one day between the announcement of the iteration and the selection process.
It should say:
Historically, it appears that NomCom chairs treat "can't contact" as "ineligible" and just move down the list. This also appears to be IETF consensus.
Was the intent to really announce seed source, wait, pick them, re-run the process? If so, how long to wait for objections? This needs much more clarification. For example, a timeline of how long to take if following RFC 3797.
