The goal for the LSR should be to have the best person in that role, as I'm
sure that you will agree. My proposal was to have a term of 2 years, with
candidates assessed as to to the degree that they are:

   1. Organized, responsive, and timely
   2. Polite and considerate; giving due consideration to all reasoned
   points of view
   3. Completely familiar with all technical aspects and requirements of
   BCP 47
   4. Aware of the usage of BCP 47 tags in practice, in HTML, HTTP, XML,
   5. Able to draw upon and assess the contributions of language experts
   in order to come to consensus.

Of course, the same person could serve indefinitely as long as that person
(perhaps you) was the best of the available candidates.
