I think it is safe to say that the FDC had a pretty clear consensus since the very beginning that WMF should lead by example.
Also, the FDC's addition to general community feedback is possibly the only practical way to deal with this issue - as the Board receives the plan too late to make major amendments. Within the FDC, I've been advocating for an exactly such solution (as suggested also by Liam). Of course, a real question will be whether the FDC will have the bandwidth to handle even parts of the WMF plan. But all in all, there definitely should be sufficient time for the community at large to comment AND to get feedback from the FDC.
