That's because it places a hard requirement on the committee, which may
limit the election of the best people for the job. As simple and reasonable
as it sounds, it is also a wildly ineffective solution to the two problems
presented: a) having a very active and butt-kicking Linux Australia ctte,
and b) adequately representing the needs of people around the country.

That is why there has been a lot of discussion about a representative
sub-committee. I'm far more interested in having the absolute best people
leading LA [1], with a group of people selected from around the country to
offer their input and ideas when required. It's the best of both worlds,
without abstract inefficiencies.
