no change is necessary - the current policy is sufficient.

ATM the proposal on the wiki is not normative. the sponsor votes on the
proposal as submitted to the list. this proposal contains a number of names
proposed as initial committers. the sponsor votes to accept the proposal
submitted including the list of initial committers. so, the list of
committers is specified by the proposer and approved by the sponsor.

what other goals would any new policy have in the area?
