Why is it the wrong way to go?

Institutionally, putting representatives of the streams in an oversight or
supervisory capacity to the entity that is to lead arbitrations among them
is structurally unsound.

The proposal doesn't forbid prior members of any body serving.  So expertise
from having worked in a stream is welcome.  But keep off folks currently in
the midst of their stream's job seems like a reasonable way to provide
a modest "air gap" in the responsibility chain.
