The main point, Dave, is to know a good submission when it
shows up. Perhaps like some forms of contracting, submissions
should be anonymized while being sorted. That is why Proposals
in some businesses have to come in formal layouts, requirements
are numbered and responses are checked by different teams.
Then the downselect occurs and the BAFO and BARFO proceed.
There are variations such as the team that writes the requirements
is not allowed to grade the submissions. That means a deep bench.
In other words, if requirements are that tough to come up
with, clarity for the product is lacking and it may not yet
be time to create it.

Not sure about W3C committees destroying hotel rooms
(Liam is that true? :-) but the 'stale' committee I'm sure
is a reality in most organisations. At least with the same faces they
that X will hit his hobby horse again, Y will agree if we shout
etc. Bring new faces in and who knows what might happen. Less cosy.
Good point Len.
