I'm not sure there is any benefit to having a separation of powers here. I would argue that the overlap in purpose actually makes sense(and due to that, there is a high probability that a FWT member may be a release manager).

Having the RM on the FWT may not be a necessity, but having the RM involved as a voting member (by happenstance) can only really serve to improve the communication between FWT and RM. in the end, we count on the release manager to be a benevolent dictator; the worst things that could happen is a RM totally ignore the FWT and be absent from all discourse.

The FWT serves as an instrument to aid the RM, a channel to enforce process, a buffer against organic groupthink decision making. The process of review is the more important part, and as long as there are people with open ears who care voting, all is well.
