It seems to me that it's also management 101 that the person who does
the delegating picks the delegates.    

If the idea is to have a committee that's appointed by the NomCom,
then I don't think it's reasonable to have the formal responsibility
for the RSE with the IAB: this is yet another opportunity for
responsibility without authority.

But I have no trouble with the IAB being able to select a committee to
which it delegates the regular oversight of the RSE (and I thought
that's what was being proposed).
