Or no term limits :)

Well, there is still the potential for gaming the system, because fixed 
dates are not practical as you say. It's not that the person who is 
affected considers it to be a problem, although I can very well imagine 
that he thinks it is unfair. It's human, and having emotions doesn't 
disqualify someone as a board member. It's about the whole set of skills 
and personality of a potential candidate.
