[OpenID board] Fwd: [board-private] OIDF BOD update

Perhaps we could take these ideas and dump them into UserVoice and get folks
to vote and discuss them...
When they're in UserVoice, they have a permalink, and we could go about
assigning them to different individuals who want to take ownership of
them...

I think that's key -- fanning out responsibilities and giving folks
something constructive to do -- and broadening the kinds of skills that we
need to advance OpenID (i.e. beyond just technologists).
