I'm not so sure I agree that there's active effort to preserve the culture,
or emphasize the importance of same when selecting NomCom members.  Rather,
it's important to have people on the NomCom that at least understand the
culture as it is now; an understanding of the past and present is important
to identify what we need for the future.  Sometimes we need to select
candidates to continue work along the current path, and sometimes we need
to select candidates that can take us in a better direction when it's
obvious that improvement is needed.
