I don't feel strongly about this, except for ensuring selection of the
Review committee is to be conducted by RIR communities, and this is my

To me, since NRO EC will be conducting the SLA review, it makes sense
for NRO EC to set up the Review Commitee and the selection be left to
the RIR communities.

I'm also fine with the RIRs, as an equivalent of this but I think we
should be consistent in the word we use, to avoid confusion.

I'm not sure how it would be possible for RIR communities to set up a
Review Committee as a procedural matter, in defining the call for
nominations, nomination procedures, etc.

Strongly agree. This seems to be causing confusions.
Alternatively, I'm also fine with describing in brackets such as :

 NRO    (a coordinating body for the five)
 NRO EC (The chief executives of the five RIRs)
