No... we should not. That would greatly hamper the board's ability to get
good candidates. Most people who are already in a current job are not going
to be willing to have open debates about the job opportunities they are
seeking. Not only because their 'boss' will know but also because if they
are in a public company that could cause large issues in the market etc
(all for naught if they don't get selected).
