Thanks SM,
It's clear now - and ok too.

Life is the educators practical joke in which you spend the first half learning, and the second half learning that everything you learned in the first was wrong.

Thank you for the comments.

> In section 4, two or more chairs are chosen - i thought it would be nice for them not to be elected at the same time - as this will mean tenures ending at the same time - potentially jeopardizing the process if one of the incumbents don't come back to office. Could you put something like this in? or you still think i will be in a separate doc?

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.
