[tei-council] Lists of Council Members

The other day while examining Sebastian's PDF of the Guidelines for 
flaws I noticed the acknowledgement section. In it there is a list of 
council members who elected and active during the years that TEI P5 
version 1.0 was created. See: 

This got me thinking about all those Council members who have 
contributed sometimes significantly to the Guidelines since their 
initial P5 publication, and that the donation of their time to the TEI 
isn't recorded in the Guidelines per se.  There is a list of currently 
serving members at http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Council/ but that as 
well only lists currently elected members.

What I was going to suggest is that:
a) there should be a publicly accessible, simple alphabetic list of who 
has been on Council (optionally board as well), and their associated 
dates, which is updated each year.
b) that the Guidelines (at the bottom of the list of Council members) 
give a link to this with a note to the effect that ongoing maintenance 
has been undertaken by the TEI Council.

And no, in case you're interested, I'm already in the list in the 
Guidelines so this isn't some way to try and shoehorn my name in, just a 
recognition that there are some who I know have worked hard on the 
Guidelines since then who aren't in that list.

Food for thought,
