Honestly, a forced rotation yearly might reduce consistency, rather than
improve it. Because there's no guarantee everyone wants to be on the
steering board, there may be a relatively small number of developers who
are both willing to be on it, and meet the wants of the developers as a
whole with a decent degree of confidence. If you force the developers to
be unable to vote for their top 5 picks, all you're doing is saying
"Every other year you can only have the second-best steering board
instead of what you feel is the best."

If a board is bad, it will naturally not be chosen again. If it's good,
there's not a real problem with members of it continuing the next year.
