Can you argue about why is it not?

Considering mail times it is almost a mutual exclusion, and I'm pretty
sure unlikely conflicts can be solved by private mails among the drivers
(or by the admin of the dep project on alioth or whatever, it is not
really a problem).

Also, the point of deciding the number before starting to write the
initial proposal is not that relevant as well: does it really matter
whether you have a number in advance or not?
