But it would be a council of Sopherim, not of all the leading men of the nation.
This is what the early Sopherim did, and probably Ezra himself.
What was done by the Sopherim, and those with and for whom they worked, was done privately and without official sanction.
They were the lines which the Sopherim collectively agreed upon, for their own practice as interpreters and judges.
