Margaux, 

Oh geez, you're right - apparently it is already a bug! I'll log it in our backlog. Thanks for the clarification!

I wouldn't call it a bug because a Policy may be in place which explicitly grants the authority to elect members which are not part of the Circle. We have such a policy in place for our facilitators: "In all circles only those people may be elected as Facilitators who are filling the role of Qualified Facilitator. An election of a person as Facilitator who is not filling the role of Qualified Facilitator is invalid and requires a re-election."
