Moderators have a responsibility to keep the spam away from the  
lists, so although I don't know that there is a rule, I'd say  
committers are the primary source for moderators. The only technical  
requirement I know of is that you have an email address.

Three is usually enough. I've seen cases where one or two are not due  
to moderators being on vacation. Time zone isn't a big issue, as the  
only effect of slow moderation is a delay in the first-time post of a  
user (or system-generated message as we've seen here).
