Yeah, somebody else made a similar point upthread. I guess we felt that
the proper procedure was obvious given the structure, but maybe not.
I could support adding text to clarify this, perhaps along the line of

In the event of a complaint against a CoC committee member, the
process proceeds normally, but that person is excluded from the
committee's discussions in the matter. Similarly, in the event of
a complaint against a core team member, the process proceeds
normally, but that person is excluded from any core review that
may occur.

and maybe also

In such cases, removal from the committee or core is another
possible sanction, in addition to those mentioned above.
