Yes, i think that is a good call to any current and potential future 
OSMF board members.

The term "leadership" might be open to interpretation but at some level 
the idea behind it always means in a way some people lead and others 
follow.  For OSM i would say the OSM community leading and the OSMF 
board following should be the norm and not the other way round.  For 
that compassion, good judgement, the ability to listen and to weigh 
different views and perspectives and above all a solid connection to 
the base of the OSM community (the mappers) are what counts.
