6 For the same reason why governing bodies sometimes restrict accumulation of
7 mandates (and have term limits etc.). Of course the electorate can just vote
8 for another person, but that is not the point.
10 In the case of Gentoo, if one body is supposed to supervise the other,
11 holding positions in both can lead to problems. While this may be ok if one
12 of them is small and limited in scope, the more powerful both are the more
13 problematic it gets.
