I don't think that you got a real answer to your section question.

The standard response to this would be a question in return. Instead of
"remove inactive members and add new ones" why not just "add new ones".

The point of this question is that inactive PMC members are not a problem
(Apache culture is heavily designed to make this work) and they could be an
asset in the future. So removing the inactive members is actually a slight
negative to the project.

The real key is the "add new ones" part of your suggestion.
