Nobody says it does. At least not long term. If the board
feels like they can handle the load themselves -- there's
no need for the side of the committee that acts that way.
However, it feels like a safer bet to try and have it first
and then see if the load is light enough so that the board
can act directly 100%.

Btw, board *does* act directly even today (case in point
the thread started by Rich).

Just as the board's job is to tell PMC when something's going wrong
ditto with the committee.

I see it same way as ComDev (or any other ground like that). There's
a voting process, you get nominated and accepted. The only
qualification is that you *have* to be an ASF member.

Again, since the comittee is just acting as a 'clerk' for the board, the
process is still the same as what we have today between the board
and the TLPs.
