1. committe == slow release
2. There is no such thing as an Unbiased person
3. Good recommendations are always reviewed within the current paradigm 
of communication, look at this thread.

The more people you add to a particular process with the ability to 
express their opinion, will only add to the complexity and slowness of 
ANY particular project.

There is a reason CORE is small. Because it is efficient.

Although, I do believe there should be sub-core groups:

1. Core -- Main database backend -- central approval/rejection
    a. plCore -- controls the release/distribution/testing etc.. of the 
pl languages
    b. contribCore -- products that make it into contrib

This would probably greatly reduce the load on core as a whole and allow 
them to focus on the main server itself.
