I think that the people on the SC should be people who have models/viewpoints
they are willing to defend. I mean, most people post their ideas on here,
but not everyone would be happy to actually design system components and
help code them to their designs... but the visionaries with the ideas
are the people that will have the motive to push to get things done, and
have ideas for better ways of doing things.

What I would suggest is that everyone who has a viewpoint to expound
(hi, Fare ;-) post a campaign manifesto stating their goals and
interests. Then Richard Coleman can either choose some or call a
vote, selecting the most popular ten or so. It would, obviously,
be good to choose so that people who do not have opposing
plans in the same area, but that's not as important as getting
a set of people whose ideas cover all the system components we'll
