There are many other leadership positions that we would exclude if we
started restricting TC candidates to only current/past PTLs. SIG Chairs
(formerly WG leads) for example.

Some sort of leadership role prior to running is important, I agree. But we
would never have had people like Colleen Murphy or Chris Dent who were and
are, respectively, excellent members of the TC.
