You appear to be arguing against the status quo of all new committers joining the PPMC though.
So my question remains, is there really a problem with waiting until graduation to adjust
this project's PMC? 

My sense is that the project is still in a formative stage and will need significant changes
to the PMC before graduation - it has a number of PMC members who in a normal Apache project
would not even be committers, for example. Once the dynamics of a fully functional project
are evident I would expect to see a more complete rethink. The partial move of restricting
admission to the PPMC now is counterintuitive if there is no current harm being done.
