I would rather not see the Council changing its Operating Procedures during an election cycle. For now we have to live with the consequences what was defined before, and plan ahead for future election cycles how to address all of this. 
That doesn't prevent us from adopting some improvements in ad-hoc fashion within the timeline that staff already informed us that the current OP prescribe, notably the communication part.

Maybe I can turn the question around and share with you the original timeline for the election which was approved by the GNSO Council following review and discussion (see Proposed time table for Election of the GNSO Council Chair <http://gnso.icann.org/en/drafts/gnso-council-chair-election-24jul15-en.pdf>)? It may be helpful for everyone to review and provide feedback in hindsight whether the timing should have been different factoring in some of the elements you outline below so it can help inform future election time lines?
