The name change from REOC seems good to me, even withing
Glenn's model.

My original personal suggestion to Glenn was more or less
this. Although it's yet more work for Nomcom, I like the idea
of the committee being directly responsible to the community
rather than indirectly (via the IAB).

But I see this as a problem. I think we need a stronger individual
responsibility. I'd perhaps suggest:
   RFC Series Executive Director (RSED)
      Works with RSOC on new initiatives
