In general, it's not ethical, and in many places not legal, to proxy a vote of an officer it board member.

Some of it had to do with fiduciary responsibility. The other is that members or shareholders can proxy their votes, but in the end responsibility falls on the board of directors. You don't want them in turn passing their votes down the line because at that point you lose accountability.
