Louis, these are hardly ad-hoc committees, they are some of the oldest committees in the foundation.
They are Presidents committees and without them the ASF would not operate well at all.

Whimsy is not a committee but a set of tools maintained by Sam Ruby to help the board.

They are invisible to many, but that's because they are operations rather than community committees.

+1, modulo my own dislike of ad hoc committees that become entrenched as bureaucratic institutions.

However, if the other instances that Ross points to have worked well enough and have retained
the plasticity that would keep them relevant and useful, then, sure.
