If you look at the documented role of the TC, you'll see that it is
mostly focused on deciding on proposed governance (or governance
repository) changes. The only section that does not directly translate
into governance change approval is "Ensuring a healthy, open
collaboration", which is about tracking that the project still lives by
its documented values, principles and rules -- activities that I think
should also remain with the TC.
Beyond that, it is true that some Technical Committee members are
involved in driving other initiatives (including *proposing* governance
changes), but I'd say that they do it like any other community member could.
While I think we should (continue to) encourage participation in
governance from other people, and ensure a healthy turnover level in TC
membership, I don't think that we should *restrict* TC members from
voluntarily doing things beyond approving changes.
