Personally(!) I believe that the RFC should give a strong recommendation on the membership, but should allow the committee to evolve. In other words, I see this group as a committee of the IAB whereby the membership is described in SHOULD rather than MUST terminology.
Obviously a future IAB has the responsibility to explain why they would not follow the recommendation when appointing a committee.
Is that still in line with what you both are envisioning?
