It would be helpful to *me*.

However, such a resolution needs to address the issue of who should bring a 
request from Debian to the board if not the DPL.  You cannot expect 
responsible board members to read debian-vote and take action on our own 
initiative; there needs to be an official delegate from Debian to SPI, 
however appointed, and the selection of this delegate needs to be easily and 
publically verifiable.
