ISTM that regardless of how the questions are phrased, this experiment is rigged to succeed. 

Because of the confidentiality requirements, all the information we are likely to get will be from a report by the NomCom chair, and even that is going to be sanitized to such a degree that it won’t tell us anything.

So anything short of the NomCom appointing 7 marketing types to the IESG who will promptly replace all WG chairs with supermodels to “improve the image of the IETF” is going to be considered a failure of this experiment. The overwhelmingly most likely outcome is “We ran the experiment, nothing horrible happened, no issue with extending this forever”. Besides, the work of the NomCom cannot be evaluated when they complete their work. We have to evaluate them by what their appointees do, and that’s a couple of more years in the future.
