Well, you could harness the power of vote-against. Basically you would
need to get to a point where you would have a greater number of board
members who have fulfilled their elected mandates (two releases or
whatever) and then ask the voters to vote N fresh faces in and vote
another N old farts out (board members that have fulfilled their
mandates). Count the votes, curse democracy, and you have something that
looks like it's appealing a bit more to "people's will" than "term
limits". If you impose a restriction that old farts can not run for
reelection without sitting a release out, you will be guaranteed some
turnover, with the survivors basically living on borrowed time unless
they're willing to sit one release cycle out and qualify to run for
election for another full term.
