I disagree completely with these options. The options do not include one of 
the possibilities that was most mentioned here: a list of all the relevant 
authors. Also, the question had biased wording: "Please note that especially 
popular articles can have hundreds or thousands of contributors" but 
not "Please note that people without Internet access can not see the list of 
authors if it is given as a link".
