That analogy seems right to me, FESCo is more than an engineering body,
but doesn't take the really important decisions.

It may make sense. If the information regarding the suitability of the
potential administrators is spread over the community, like it is the
case in fedora where some information is gained through inter-personal
relations in reviews or in private. Maybe it could be part appointed 
by FPB, part elected to gather advice from the community. However it
should be clear that it isn't a representativeness issue, but a mere
choice issue.

There are countries where some people of the administration are elected
(I think it is the case in the US).
