I have made the suggestion of keeping business and organizational 
interests with OSM connections outside the OSMF board in general on 
multiple occasions - in recent discussion here for example in:


but also before, for example in RadioOSM 50 from half a year ago IIRC.  
And i am by far not the only one how thinks this would be a good idea.

This is not primarily meant as a measure of CoI avoidance but this would 
of course be a welcome side effect of it - which is why i mention it 

You may of course disagree this is a good idea but i reject your 
argument that this is so because it is not suitable as the *only* 
measure against CoIs or as a way you can avoid them completely.  This i 
never suggested, what i wrote is:

> occurring because the vast majority of CoI are related to business
> and organizational connections.
