Really? Cause I didn't get that message at all. What I got out of it
was, "The board intends to consolidate the power of the existing big
name chapters, and make some gesture of including them on the board,
but we're actually not addressing substantively the issue of making it
easy for them to actually form and be approve."
There's no excuse for blaming the chapters or the people in them when
the system for developing and approving them is fundamentally flawed.

In my view, when the board of WMF decided to let
chapters select two
representatives, it was also a heavy message to the chapters: collect
your wits and be grown ups. I am not quite sure how chapters can
board members when they are not even able to self organize to get a
common mailing list for an election. That's not necessarily out of bad
will, but mostly poor infrastructure and lack of cooperation.
