As far as I know, there is nothing that forbids the board to seek advice 
from Anne or other candidates - or even other members of the community.
I am involved in other UNIX/Linux communities where we have established 
working groups or subcommittees for different subjects. In these groups
all members are invited to participate, and it leads to a higher
activity level overall in the community, more active members,
and more work done.
