Or even one.

Not necessary at all.

Sounds reasonable.

Maybe we should have same check for every SO/AC?

From SSAC we are ok with one, but would like to have one "vice representative" for continuity reasons.

But, number of people is one thing, how to come to consensus in the group is a different one.

I am with you here.

Although I am not as nervous as you on these issues, because I think some things under time pressure must be more consultation based, I *am* nervous when I do not see everyone understand the difference between multi-stakeholder bottom-up and consultations.

I.e. if people knew the difference, demonstrated they understand the difference, and then explain WHY for some reasons they choose a consulting mechanism instead of bottom up, well, then we could maybe disagree on whether those arguments are correct or not.

But, as I wrote, I see too many (larger than zero) that do not understand the difference.
