Would absolutely be happy/ willing to contribute to this as well.
Adding on to the excellent comments made by @corporal_clegg I think it’s important to consider the future of NEM- a lot of foundation governed chains view themselves as temporary custodians until on chain governance can be done; see the Tezos foundation for instance where they plan to “let go” of the reins as the ecosystem matures. Is that a possible/ desirable future for NEM?
At the same time on chain governance is NOT an end all be all solution. Just look at the mess that is EOS voting- fractured on geopolitical lines with terrible allegations of voter manipulation. A very low turnout rate too.
Cardano is a right up mess. As it goes I am fearful that if we don’t get things sorted out we may be headed in that direction.
Aside from looking at blockchain governance, perhaps it would be interesting to look at models from other self-regulated industries? The blockchain space is really where we are all struggling- everybody is going through growing pains of some sort and maybe governance is one area we can turn to the old system to look at what has or hasn’t worked.
