If you apply your argument consistently, then we have to ask ourselves
why do we elect a board in the first place?   Every point you make about
the voted president can be applied to the voted board.

The reason to have a president is so you can delegate plenty of mundane
decisions to someone you trust.  In the same way that every Gnome
Foundation member votes to have someone they trust on the board to run
the Foundation.

In any case, the value of a president is something that the board will
decide, they have the power to choose or not choose such proxy to carry
out the tasks of the foundation.
