I’m totally fine with that. Ideally it’s the person who is the most passionate about the API from the team, regardless of core status.
The current wording on the Cross-Project Liaisons page is
"The liaison should be a core reviewer for the project, but does not need to be the PTL.”
I think the key word there is _should_. Naturally, it’s preferable to want a core reviewer in this role because they have more say about what gets into the code base but it’s not an absolute must.
We can loosen the wording further but I think it’s okay to proceed with a non-core reviewer, especially if that person is passionate about APIs.
