That was what I thought until I reread 3777.  It says that the
immediately previous chair serves as an advisor but also says
that the Nomcom can appoint any other advisors it feels like.  I
assume that combination is part of where "at least" came from.

But Barry's new text gets rid of that odd and possibly confusing
way of stating things and is, IMO, a considerable improvement.
