That sounds fine to me.

I'm not sure how to word it but I felt that it was appropriate to disclose that
I work for Red Hat (Even though I do not work on RHEL or Fedora), since Red Hat
produces something "similar" to Debian, or more specifically a third party
could hypothetically allude that it was in Red Hat's interests for Debian to
make a particular technical decision. (I didn't see this rationale on your list)

I respect that, but I hope that those who are happy to add themselves to the
list as it stands are not dissuaded from doing so (in my view, I'd happily see
the shape of the list evolve and adapt my entry to fit as necessary).

The former can be inferred from the wiki page history.
