This has nothing to do with trust.  I look at the facts.  History proves that just voting fails.  And the downfall occurs before voting even happens.

-People are less likely to run for a position on the AC knowing they are up against long time incumbents
-People are less likely to run for a position on the AC knowing stagnation exists and new thought is not likely to be received well
-Familiarity is comfort and subconsciously people lean toward this.  True opportunity for change must be present and not just a perception.

So, why make a rule about this instead of trusting the voting members (and the people sitting) to get it right?

That is, I agree with everything you say, but I don't understand why the solution to that is to make an absolute rule that can never be violated in exceptional cases.  What problem are you trying to solve?
