Yes. The thing to realize is you don't *have* to check signatures right
away. If we all vote with GPG signed emails, it can still serve as an
audit trail should anyone want to check up on it later.

Though I do agree a "Meritocracy, not democracy" philosophy. Having
existing FESCo members appoint replacements is possibly a good way to do
this. However there needs to be some kind of checks and balances.
Perhaps the existing FESCo can nominate new members, and the community
can confirm or veto. (Which still likely involves voting which makes me
wonder if this would really be substantially different. Oh well.)
