Hold the fort a moment there Chris, I don't believe Pete mentioned anything about this "governing body" being a part of the ARRL. So let's not slam the League for something that they had nothing to do with, especially when they weren't even mentioned.
In fact, if were such a governing body to come about (and I am not sure that is a good idea, mind you, I need to think about this one), I personally would NOT want the ARRL, or for that matter the IARU, to be placed in any form of control over said organization -- simply to avoid any potential conflict of interest. (And the same would go for other national or international organizations that run major contests, including CQ Magazine.)
But, IMHO, long before we reach the point of discussing whether or not said governing body is required or even somewhat necessary, IMHO we need to conclude the ongoing discussion on whether or not the actions of the RDXC, especially with regards to entry reclassification due to alleged discrepancies in power levels, was fair, warranted, or even appropriate.
And related to that, if the general concensus is that the actions were, at best, inappropriate, as to whether or not RDXC results should continue to be used as part of the determination of potential entrants for WRTC and similar events.

could you please specify the intended consequences for those contests and national radio leagues and clubs not obeying to this world contest governing body?
ARRL should present a planned DQ to someone outside ARRL?
Personal remark only.
