Realistically, there might not be a choice.  That depends on the
composition of devrel, of course, and if the population count forces
managers to be investigators, then so be it.

It's better not, however.  Ideally, an appeals panel should work only
from the record before it and the arguments made by the parties
involved.  Personally, if I were on an appeals panel hearing a case I
had previously investigated, I'd have trouble putting aside opinions I
had formed during the appeals process (but I emphasise this is related
to my own personal makeup).

If nothing else, the ultimate outcome of any case decided on appeal
would look more legitimate if investigation, adjudication, and appeal
were handled by separate bodies.

Or, maybe I'm just being to legalistic here?
