This would work, but should be accompanied by keeping some kind of
'track-record', so whoever the person in charge of these decisions can
be held accountable - meaning, if it becomes clear they are making bad
decisions that result in a lot of blowback, pull them from that decision
making position and let someone else give it a try.
