I'm not sure there is any benefit to having a separation of powers 
here.   I would argue that the overlap in purpose actually makes 
sense(and due to that, there is a high probability that a FWT member may 
be a release manager).

Having the RM on the FWT may not be a necessity, but having the RM 
involved as a voting member (by happenstance) can only really serve to 
improve the communication between FWT and RM.    in the end, we count on 
the release manager to be a benevolent dictator; the worst things that 
could happen is a RM totally ignore the FWT and be absent from all 

The FWT serves as an instrument to aid the RM, a channel to enforce 
process, a buffer against organic groupthink decision making.   The 
process of review is the more important part, and as long as there are 
people with open ears who care voting, all is well.
