The tech-ctte is supposed to judge on technical grounds and not consider
merit or power.  The soc-ctte will for sure not exclude merit completely
from their considerations, and - by the nature of their task - are
probable to consider power, too.  And maybe that's not even a bad
thing.  I think this shows that the separation is more important here.
