Thank you for the comments.

Quoting the last sentence in the second paragraph of Section 4:

   "At the time this policy is adopted, one of the Working Group Chairs
    will be appointed for a one-year term."

That is similar to what you mentioned above.  The intent is to have 
continuity by ensuring that there is one sitting Chair with at least 
one year's experience.  A new Chair is chosen each year.  There are 
two Chairs at any given time, excluding exceptional circumstances.

Assuming Chair A is chosen for two years, Chair B is chosen for one 
year, Chair C is chosen for two years and Chair D is chosen for two years:

  Year 1 Chair A and Chair B
  Year 2 Chair A and Chair C
  Year 3 Chair C and Chair D

AfriNIC could publish supporting documents about the practical 
details in the event that this proposal is adopted.
