Something maybe worth bearing in mind on that point, when we want a pilot to fly a Saturn lander we don't hire someone with Saturn lander piloting credentials because they don't exist yet. Distributed economics is a whole new field, no one has credentials in it because those credentials don't exist yet. I'm not saying we should pick some random member of the public from the street and put them in charge but I would urge caution on trying to apply long established but often totally inappropriate methods from a similar field. Practically every industry is littered with outdated methods and practices simply because that's the way it's always been done....
When you get on a commercial airplane, you do not elect a pilot from the passengers to fly the plane. There are trained, credentialed pilots hired to fly the plane.
