A good policy except that I'd recommend you respond to at least some
of them to say *why* you think they're worth ignoring. Many people
posting to this list cannot be expected to know your policy since
they're here for the first time.

I agree in the main with the majority of your sponsoring
considerations, and I'd love for prospective maintainers to be
educated on them as good practice.
