I understand you're committed to the current model so with that in mind, my suggestion would be to keep it simple. Don't set up a new panel or anything. Too much hassle. Let the current MODs serve as "the Panel". MODs can decide who gets kicked off so I have no problem with them deciding who's accepted. When someone applies, you folks send PMs back and forth and come to a decision, seamlessly. The rest of us need not know the applicant was even being considered.
I'm fine with leaving the system like it is. It's no skin off my back but it seems a bit cumbersome.
