That is true for all the fedora contributors. I can't see why FESCo members
should be treated specially.

Ok, so it is redundant with the other condition today, and if someday a 
FESCo member isn't qualified as an experienced packager as per the other
conditions, I don't think being in FESCo would make him experienced. 
FESCo members are elected, so they may not be experienced packagers, but
something like representatives - although this is more a theoretical
possibility, given how the community works.

It is not very important, however since in general FESCo members will be
sponsors or relevant SIG members, and so listing them separately don't hurt 
either.
