I think this sentence strikes at the core of my reservations about this
proposal.  The whole thing feels like an appeal to novelty fallacy.  I see
nothing inherently wrong with someone having been on the technical
committee for its entire history; in fact, on the surface, it looks like a
feature to me.

I've not seen a reason to believe that rotating the technical committee
would, in and of itself, make it better, or that new members would somehow
bring more to it than the existing members simply because they're new.
