Thanks, Noah.

I do believe that it will usually be a good idea for the Directors to come from a diverse set of countries, so I intend to ask the Board to put that as a guideline for the next NomCom.  I will also ask the Board to ask the NomCom to consider other aspects of diversity.

I cannot see a plausible risk of capture from allowing more than one director per country, and I do not want to add unnecessary restrictions to the chiuces made by future voters, so I do not intend to propose that as a rule for the Bylaws.
