I agree with Joanna very strongly.  This is cart before horse in a
very bad way.  There is nothing near consensus on the structure of the
at large and trying to turn it into IDNO v2 is going to fail.  

My suggestion on the ALSC mailing list was that if there had to be
interim elections it should be for just one body of say 10 people as a
steering cmte/exec and that those people elected to it be ineligible
to stand for any other at large office for 12 months (hence should
remove concerns about empire building).

As Joanna says the main thing now is to keep signing people up rather
than imposing a structure from the top down.
