] as might be the object of the appeal, is flawed. 

mumble.  I find it hard to imagine that if the appeal is about someone on
IESG, for instance, that that AD would not recuse himself.  but it wouldn't
bother me if the process were changed to make that explicit.

well, since everything we do is "on paper" (or "on bits") I guess I wonder
what kind of mechanism you have in mind.
