The concern I have with this procedure is that we'd drop folks after the
proposal is voted on and approved.  If this procedure were done before
approval to create the initial list, that's okay with me.  My concern is
that if someone is on the initial list, that they have the right to
commit/PPMC status if they ask for it.  -- justin
