I don't know where you got this, but it definitely is not true that
every PMC chair is a member. This is not even a requirement. It is
possible and reasonable that an entire project community contains not a
single ASF member, only committers. Certainly, members must be involved
during incubation, but there's no requirement for them to stay on the
project once it has graduated.

Pierre, when I said "only members can nominate new members", I meant
that literally. "Propose" and "nominate" are not synonyms. It is IMO
perfectly reasonable for non-members to propose new members, basically
by bringing them to the attention of existing members -- presumably, on
this list. It's not the most efficient way since I'd expect people to
only nominate someone whom they know well, and would therefore have to
get involved in the project for a non-trivial amount of time to form
their own opinion about the proposal.
