Actually Matt , it really isnít even a committee, itís one person, one contrary officially appointed to oppose canonization, he would be more commonly recognized as the Devilís Advocate, google this term for a complete explanation of the process.

Itís an arcane set up but still very much in common usage, my problem as you have noted is the potential for misinterpretation, but is it my problem?
If it is then a footnote may be necessary.
