Swap the focus.  Rather than seeking to characterize the clueless, let's
characterize folk who are much more likely to be clueful:

     Ensure that at least a portion of the Nomcom has contributed in
formal, documented way.  AD, Chair, author.. whatever set of activities
we feel makes it likely they will have clue.


As for Loa's question about why someone who hasn't done real IETF work
would want to volunteer, the answer is politics and/or ego.  They or
their company might want to hold sway over nomcom or the person might
just want to add this to their resume.
