Only problem with ex fighters is proving them to be impartial. Ex fighters will have connections to fighters, camps, friends all over the place, enemies, potential former opponents, former allies etc etc., that would go beyond being able to fully detect all the time. Favouritism or dislike, for a good reason, could be in the ex fighters mind, without anyone else ever knowing.

Of course, I'm not fully suggesting that ex fighters would all consciously do this, but there certainly would be potential conflicts of interest all over the place.
