&#167;Possibly, but first you'd need to precisely define the role of the trustees.
&#167;
&#167;What are these people expected to accomplish?

They make the policy decisions based on community input.

&#167;What powers do they have?

They decide on who handles the operational duties.
They interface to the IANA to make sure the name
server delegations are properly entered.

&#167;Why is having 8 trustees any better than having one?

Diversity, common sense, two heads are better than one,
stability, security, continuity, etc.

&#167;
&#167;In my opinion Robert is doing a very satisfactory job.
&#167;

That sounds like you are referring to the staff operational
job, not the trusteeshp job. By definition, one person can
not do a satisfactory job of being a group.
