I don't think that would work, because the Council (and the Board, for
that matter) must be able to rely on a certain amount of stability so
that they can establish reasonably long-term goals, and develop a good
working dynamic with the other members of the team.

If members can be added and/or removed randomly, then it inhibits the
ability of the Council to plan effectively.
