It might look, admittedly, strange that an ASF officer is not an ASF 
member, but for the PMC chair role, the person has been selected 
because he cares very much about one project: this doesn't make the 
person 'automatically' caring for the entire foundation.

[I'm not pointing fingers to anyone, just stating an abstract concept]

I would, personally, be against a PMC chair which is not a member as 
the incubator sponsor for a project which doesn't reside under the PMC 
he/she leads.

It might well just be me, but I see no cracks in our Matrix.
