(I'm no lawyer but) I appears to me that making a corporate entity
be responsible for administration and policy would tie it up in
endless litgation and associated injunctions forever and a day.

What mechanisms would allow this body to operate, rather than simply
spend its entire time defending its actions on court hearings?

What would be the liability of members and directors of this entity?

errk - I would suggest that this need far more thought.

I also am totally unsure why this route of incorporation is the chosen
route. Can anyone explain to me why this the case?
