That's a flaw right there.
The tech panel & the judges, for that matter, are appointed to ISU competitions by Cinquanta, with the advice of the VP of figure skating, David Dore, past president of Skate Canada.
This recent article from the Boston Globe says:
The paper about to be published is:A new study from a professor of economics at Dartmouth, however, suggests this has all been for naught or, even worse, for show. He finds that, if anything, a competitor with a compatriot on the judging panel can now expect even more nationalistic bias and vote trading. And he thinks the ISU may be part of the problem: “Some of the actions of the ISU after the 2002 judging scandal can only be rationalized as attempts to reduce the perception of corruption by limiting outside monitoring.”

Apparently Dr. Zitzewitz (a name with three Z's ) would answer, "No."
