I think it would be good if the curators were not just the editors (to avoid guessing what is in the spec instead of reading it), and it would be good to have implementers involved there, for the reason you say.

However, since we're generally facing a shortage of reviewers, I would say it should just be a preference when the chairs try and recruit curators rather than an absolute rule.

There is already a spot for a test coordinator on each test suite page:

https://test.csswg.org/suites/css-fonts-3_dev/nightly-unstable/

This comes a proposal back in 2013 to have test suite owners. We did not get many volunteers, and assigning people to the role did not appear to spur more test suite development (as I recall).

Thanks,

Alan
