The board must have at least 7 people. Aside from that, your summary is
correct. But then, we're supposed to trust our board members at election
time - that's why we vote for them, isn't it? :)

Seriously - the board will not abuse this, but co-opting members onto
the board to handle workload is a common occurrence - as is setting up
empowered sub-committees.
