We tried it that way with content moderators several years ago - had people "nominate" others to act as moderators. It lasted all of three weeks and the people who were "selected" were basically beaten over the head or run off the site.
The process was fine. Just because it wasn't public doesn't mean we didn't consider all members of the site.
