I fully subscribe to that notion. The board has to be equipped with
members, who are primarily selected for their adherence with the core
values of the Wikiverse, the five pillars[1]. The WMF is not, and should
never be, anything like a corporation, it's an educational charitable
non-profit NGO.

"Member of the board" is not just a job but but a trusted position based
primarily on virtue, credibility and values.

Outside advise should be fetched either ad hoc or with some kind of
standard procedure from experts, like an advisory board.
