Thanks to @COSDpool and @HeptaSean for offering feedback so far. I will offer responses to some of the concerns in an effort to try and build informal consensus.
...what you are proposing is beyond the scope of the CIP framework... there is... no CIP type... that matches what you are describing... mainly because your suggestion is organizational and social rather than technical
CIP1 provides the following description of Process CIPs:
A Process CIP describes a process surrounding Cardano, or proposes a change to (or an event in) a process. Process CIPs are like Standards Track CIPs but apply to areas other than the Cardano protocol itself. They may propose an implementation, but not to Cardano's codebase; they often require community consensus; unlike Informational CIPs, they are more than recommendations, and users are typically not free to ignore them. Examples include procedures, guidelines, changes to the decision-making process, and changes to the tools or environment used in Cardano development.
IOG and Cardano Foundation (CF) currently use a decision-making process to decide delegations to stake pools. I see no indication in the above description that Process CIPs must be completely technical in nature, or that organizational processes are intended to be excluded from the CIP process.
[CIPs] are a collection of sensible and sound solutions to common problems within the Cardano ecosystem
Governance is an issue that concerns and affects everyone in the Cardano ecosystem. The Cardano roadmap highlights the importance of governance for the future of Cardano Voltaire - Cardano Roadmap
I suppose you don’t want the ADA themselves given to the employees, just the power to decide on IOG’s and CF’s delegations distributed to individuals?
Yes. That is the idea.
Because you don’t like their policies on how it is done at the moment? And you think individuals would do it better (for some value of “better”)?
Empowering employees to delegate some meaningful amount of ADA to stake pools at their individual discretion would serve to increase agility and decentralization of decision making surrounding stake pool delegations that IOG and Cardano Foundation may make. The impact of such an initiative on any existing IOG and CF delegation strategies would need to be carefully explored. Theoretically, a scenario exists were introducing such an initiative does not change existing delegation strategies that IOG and CF may currently practice at all. A scenario also exists where employees empowered to delegate some ADA do not exercise their delegations at all, so that the current delegation ecosystem stays exactly the same.
Which employees? All? Down to the facility management (if they have any)?
The question would need to be explored in greater detail in the process of clarifying details of the CIP.
While it's also cumbersome to discuss delegation details with them at the moment, it is at least possible.
Yes, communication between the community, and employees of IOG and CF is limited.
With the power distributed to individuals, specifically to do as they like, it is hardly open for debate at all, anymore.
Employees are not random strangers. Employees are under contract with their employer, fulfilling responsibilities based on terms of employment. IOG, CF, their respective employees, and the SPO community share a common interest in achieving Cardano’s success.
Let’s keep the conversation going.
