I think we're talking about two different things. I'm suggesting that the operational management and syntheses of options, drawing-in of outside expertise, etc. may be best run by an independent third party with no 'stake' in the result. The participation in the process would be open to all and the conclusions reached would be driven by stakeholder input - but managed impartially.

I don't see how a committee-driven process run by insiders is inherently desirable if many of them are similarly conflicted in their business lives.

There is noting that makes the same concern not applicable (the independent review team could also have an affiliation with other stakeholder member)

In this case, the external auditor belongs to one of the stakeholder and then a return to the status-quo of possible conflict of interest. Hence the reason why a collective review will be most desirable.
