We are discussing devrel here, not recruiters. I was under the
impression (perhaps mistakenly) that devrel and recruiters were two
separate projects. If one has become a subset of the other by virtue
of overlapping skill requirements and project membership maybe thats a
pointer that the projects should be merged. While that's interesting,
its not the topic of this thread.
Getting back to the topic, I do not understand why someone (not a
dev) cannot be a member of devrel only. Such an individual could be
required to become a staffer following their acceptance into devrel.

If time is always of the essence, that's a perfectly valid reason.
