It should be fine as long as the same criteria is applied to all
members of the community. We don't want a situation where only one of
two otherwise identical community members gets nominated and voted in
while the other is either not nominated in the first place or rejected
with a -1 vote. Having the expected level of contribution (even if
it's just "show up on the mailing list and ask to be given commit
access") written down somewhere as Ross suggested helps prevent this
problem.

Note also that by granting someone membership in the (P)PMC, you also
give them veto power [1] over all code changes. That's not necessarily
a problem, just something to take in to account when inviting new
people.
