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.
