I fully agree.  I think, however, that the people who don't understand
how and why that's a feature are making hay of the fact that it's hard
to find this info if you don't already know someone "on the inside".
It may make the root operators feel, to outsiders, like a club
(certainly, that's a criticism I've heard, though I don't agree with
it and take the time to argue against it when I do).

I get the "feels like advertising" problem, though.  Sorry I don't
have any easy suggestions.
