One problem is that the only syntax checking will be done by editors
highlighting syntax, and they get it wrong some times.

Apart from that, sure, it's a step. Make it one file per sponsor,
possibly employing symlinks to manage main workflow categories.

When I think about it more, however, then it'll get hard to add
dated notes with ownership like sponsors-table has.
