Why?  I think we are talking about two very different community dynamics.

How would it work?  Would you give every committer a vote on the specs
as they were created?  What is the hurdle needed to get committer
status?  Participation in both?  We understand how to do code
communities here at the ASF, and no experience in how to do spec
creation/governance.

My recommendation is to not mix the two up.

How do you foresee the spec maintenance/creation/development process to
work?

They aren't now, anyway :)
