Comments: How to improve the Standards Process: the Prisoner's Dilemma

You are asking how committees can be made to work - how committees can design complex systems. It is the wrong question. Committees cannot handle anything complex. The most a committee can do is fire the guy who made the wrong decision and try to find a better replacement.
