allowing editors who insist on being listed to
I think unless that is opt-out, not opt-in, it won't help and if it's
opt-out if probably won't make things much easier.
If we assert a default "sense of the community" that the URL is reasonable,
and allow individual authors to override that (and consequently annoy
readers and redistributors in the future) how does that negatively affect
any author's rights or property?
Either it's reasonable, or it's not. If you feel the need to give
people the option of opting out, then obviously you think it isn't
reasonable. Also, why should people that have edited in the past and
then moved on not get the same rights as current editors?
