If it's like other projects, I speculate that the people on that longer list
have exhibited varying levels of activity over time.  I don't think it's a bad
thing if the initial committer list is only a subset (though 3 is arguably too
small even to start).  So long as the podling busies itself with the task of
voting new people in, it should be OK.  I think the way Marko put it bodes
well:

    Thus, typically finding those people is the difficult part, not the
    accepting of those who do so.

   That list is noise, then, especially with no accompanying explanation of
   how it supports the proposal.

   With regard to finding committers, I notice that folks request 
   being added to the initial committers list of a proposal and 
   those are vetted one way or another by the proposer/champion.
   Has the proposal been publicized to that group and any 
   interest in being initial committers (and especially filing 
   Apache iCLAs) elicited?
