These things always start that way.

Participation in Debian is voluntary, so saying information disclosure is 
voluntary doesn't really mean anything.

I object to the existence of such a registry because just because it's 
'voluntary' now, doesn't mean it won't be effectively mandatory due to either 
new project rules or social pressures later.

The best way to make sure you don't slip down the slippery slope is stay 
somewhere flat.
