I think this is simple:

- Only allow nomination from people Already contributing to OpenStack. 
Proof from past actions is always stronger than future intentions.
- Only allow active contributors to have binding votes on nominees.
- The person that nominates, can't be the nominee and can't be the
person that seconds the nomination.
- The nominee on acceptance of the nomination needs to make a public
statement (on e-mail list) on their commitment to act on behalf of the
project and in the interests of the project.

Anyone else needs to earn their stripes by contributing to the project
first, and build enough karma in so much as someone else will be willing
to nominate them.
