Having only non-organization PMC members nominate new committers could
un-level the playing field.
1. Many times contributions might not require a contributor to have direct
1:1 discussion with PMC members outside his org.
2. It would give inordinate power/responsibility to the few non-Amazon
active PMC members.

Just my 2 cents.
