This would certainly work for me. There is obviously the question of calling what the result of the community discussion is, but I would view the community discussion as informing the decision by the meetings committee and the IAOC, i.e., the purpose of the crowdsourcing is to uncover issues that a smaller set of people might not catch, and then we have a better basis for the final decision.

(Speaking personally, not representing IAOC or other opinions.)
