I'd qualify this. The UK's independent electoral commission sounds great 
and it does great work but its remit is determined entirely by the 
Government. It cannot instigate an arbitrary study or make any 
recommendation off its own bat. The danger might be, as with the CEV, you 
get an independent commission which cannot stray off its leash.
