I know - I think I did not only read your document, but also understood

Well, yes, but they should nevertheless inform the right people.  I'm
currently writing a patch for the developer's reference (and wanted to
ask you anyway whether I could use your text as a basis).  I think in
the developers reference it would be much better to have a role defined
there, not single persons - they might change, or simply others might be

So does your answer mean that there is no role account, and not even a
name for the role?  Or is there something sensible that I can write?
