I came in to this somewhat ambiguous, thinking that term limits made
some amount of sense.  So, I've been swayed by the various concerns and
definitely think the idea needs lots more consideration before adoption.

So far, the idea of limiting the company representation on the Board
makes the most sense as a preemptive strike against evil corporate
dealings and ill-thought reasoning about the Board's make-up.
