I appreciate the two of you stepping up to do this important task.

Now for the bad news ...

However good this list may be, it has no legitimate basis to be considered 
a "MOTU" input.  

Part of our process for role transfer includes a chance for community 
review of such delegations.  Until this has happened (I guess we now have 
that chance), I don't see any legitimacy to speak on our behalf.

Alternatively, this list could have been based on input from the community. 
 That didn't happen either.

I'd like to ask you to withdraw this subission and instead give the 
community a chance for input.

We did give siretart input some time ago.  Was that used?
