I guess it's just a question of personal taste.  I like the flow of doing 
this on a mailing list.  I don't like the idea of the applicant (or their 
wiki page) intermediated between the sponsor and the MC.

I do think the template needs to clearly separate things, but that's an 
implementation detail.
