I have been active on the project and thus far the PPMC has had no problem
asking for feedback or getting (often unsolicited ;) ) advice, all without
needing me to be on the PPMC.

I have no reason to believe either my engagement or the PPMC's willingness
to reach out to or listen to what I have to say will change upon
graduation, so I don't think they need a checkbox ASF member on the initial
PMC and I'd prefer they not add one.
