The problem with almost any solution to the current system is that it requires the people who benefit from the current system to allow it.

Very true, although packing the courts is not really that hard to do in practice but the will is not there at all.

Really, I think the public at large does not realize some odd things with the Court. Like how dependent they are on the other branches. There are no real rules over composition other than the approval process and even their role was something the court figured out and gave power to itself.

The Constitution itself is not that clear on the matter but it is now accepted that judicial review is what the court does but prior to Madison it was not at all clear.
