Well, it'd be nice to make the distinction that "the _members_ control
SPI", not "the board controls SPI". At the moment, it is (on the
surface) the other way around.

How about just like we do for Debian:

A member must meet the criteria set forth by the Membership
Committee acting on behalf of the Company.

That way, the membership requirements can be more flexible. We could
even set it up so that the membership committee, in circumstances of
extreme uncertainty, can thus query the current membership and say "We're
sitting on the fence. Should 'Joe' be a member?"
