It is odd, but if you read section (c) very carefully... one must be an organizational member to *vote* in an SC election, but it is not stated as a requirement to be elected to the SC!

One might argue whether that's sensible or not, intentional or not, but it's been that way since our first RoP (~2005/6). And indeed, we did have an SC member who was an Individual for several years (Dieter).

- you will soon have only 4 organizational members, which limits your
resources to fill the SC opening, but also is below the minimum
required  number of members. (you must be 5 or above by the election

That would indeed be a problem, as we don't anticipate additional members joining the MS. However, our election period is Nov-Dec, and we do anticipate the end of MS/SC operations and organization well before that.
