I expect it would be enough if they were all active, but that has never been
the case for this group.  Wichert, Daniel, Michael and myself are all de
facto inactive for various reasons, and have been for some time.

The security team has always been a difficult one to expand.  A strong level
of trust is necessary due to confidentiality issues, and security support is
a lot of (mostly boring and thankless) work.  However, expanding it seems
like the only way to make it sustainable.
