Agreed, I think having clear expectation is good. I was happy to see the
SRU decision made at the MOTU meeting, since it affects everyone in
MOTU, and I knew that we had 4 MC members there, so that the decision
didn't have to be deferred until the MC meeting. At the first MC
meeting, there wasn't much (or any) involvement from non-MC people, so
having decisions made at the MOTU meeting is a good thing, I think.
I've added a note about answering to the TB to the charter.

Thanks,
Andrew
