Sure. I became PMC chair before being voted in as a member, for example.

This seems less likely. A cursory look at
seems to confirm that (almost! apparently vcl-pmc does not; but a smart 
LDAP query is probably better than me at checking that) all PMCs do 
contain at least a member. I remember that when OpenOffice graduated 
someone noted that only a couple of PMC members were already ASF 
members, and I assume that the same check is done on other projects, 
even if it is not a formal requirement.
