    I think any MOTU ought be free to comment / question / endorse /
criticise any applicant for these teams.  I agree that the policy as
written doesn't make this entirely clear.

    We've historically considered both teams to consist of 5 members
(although there may be some openings).  This does seem currently
unwritten, but uncontested.  Putting it here makes a lot of sense, and
ought redce confusion in the future.
