Yes, I agree with you.

I already expressed this opinion before, but I really believe all 5
Committee members must be part of debconf orga helping in at least one
of the teams. Specially when some teams need help because of lack of
people, for instance, sponsors team.

Yes, I think so.
I think the main role of choosing the next city is too little.

In my opinion, yes :-)

I think you should emphasize that all members need to have time to help
debconf organization besides vote for the next city. If a member don't
have this time to dedicate to DebConf, it's better they ask to be replaced.
