Good points Bill.  Because two candidate names were submitted, the RySG
faced the choice of making a decision quickly to accommodate a quick
replacement on the SSR RT as requested by the team or to develop a
process for endorsing one replacement and then implementing that
process.   The latter option would have taken three to four weeks at a
minimum and synching with a Council meeting would have likely delayed
providing a replacement on the RT at least until the Cartagena meeting.
As can be seen, we chose the faster solution.

It's true that the drafting team for the RT endorsement process didn't
specify modalities for replacing people; it was pretty clear that
addressing multiple circumstances would involve additional politics and
tortured verbiage.  Nevertheless, one would think that the intention of
the core principle, "Each stakeholder group may endorse one applicant to
serve as a representative in a given review team" is pretty clear and
applies to replacements as well.  As you know, neither the DT nor the
Council ever discussed the possibility of SGs getting to put forward
more names than their counterparts in any context, the whole point was
uniformity and parity, so it's a bit hard to see the absence of a
specific prohibition as a mandate.


Whatever....Hopefully someone will not cite this down the road as a
precedent for endorsing multiple names at the front end etc.
