I don't see why a champion or mentor shouldn't be
allowed to be a committer. And if they are already
working on the project by the time it enters
incubation, why should they not be on the initial
list of committers?
[1] mentions that mentors must earn committership
even though they are given karma for administration
purposes. It also mentions that mentors can be on the
initial list of committers, but are not required to.
Maybe it would feel a bit queer if a mentor voted
him- or herself in as a committer, but even then it
would take other binding votes.

cheers,
  Roland
