Much better.

Even better when you replace the concept of a mandatory gap year by the general expectation of a gap year.  With exceptions.
Say, for a reasonably successful IAB member that jumps in for an IESG position for a term because of a personnel crunch — why would that person not return to the IAB when a replacement has been found, e.g. to push forward an IAB project that has languished because of their absence.

I think the point is that we need to develop consensus that the nomcom would need to view this as exceptional, not be forced out of that option.
