I honestly think this question has been asked and answered repeatedly by the CCWG.  In a sole designator model, Board recall is the only strong enforcement power, so it must be preserved – and it must actually be exercise-able.  So I strongly defend the principle.  That said, these challenges are almost always going to arise in the context of a questionable exercise of Board authority under the Bylaws.  In that case, the new protections we are putting in place at the Board’s request (the community must first pursue an IRP whenever that is available) should safeguard against unreasonable behavior.  Planning for extraordinary corner cases – a 3 SO/AC combination wanting to recall the Board because it did something permitted under the Bylaws – seems likely to sink the consensus we have carefully crafted.

Tks for explanation.
This means that Under those circumstances that ICANN Bylaws and /or Article of Incorporation isnot violated , the Board is Under the mercy of the SO/AC .
That is a very shaky and uncertain situation since just those SO and AC may for any unjustified reasons get together and Spill over the Board
That is what the community wants ?
