+1 on both.

I think the good way of looking at the Chair from PMC side is 
 - a bureaucrat, who's responsible to file board@ reports on time and carry on
   some other functions like updating PMC records, etc.
 - a neutral mediator shall any conflicts within the community arise

A good practice which worked in a few of projects is for the current chair
to start a [DISCUSS] to nominate a new chair every year or so. If no
nominations were made, the current chair simply stays for another periodk
