I fully subscribe to that notion. The board has to be equipped with members, who are primarily selected for their adherence with the core values of the Wikiverse, the five pillars. The WMF is not, and should never be, anything like a corporation, it's an educational charitable non-profit NGO.
"Member of the board" is not just a job but but a trusted position based primarily on virtue, credibility and values. Outside advise should be fetched either ad hoc or with some kind of standard procedure from experts, like an advisory board.
