All the usual arguments against elected "judges" in democracies apply
here, and I'm personally very much against the election of arbitration
bodies in general. If anything, the highly technical nature of a project
like Debian reinforces those arguments.

More importantly, it doesn't seem to me we're near having a concrete GR
proposal for electing ctte members. So IMO it would be best to
disentangle this discussion from the term limit GR proposal.
