Hrm, I would've thought the opportunity to change your mind later would
still be relevant though (in the "actually, on reflection, that's fine,
make it public" or "ooops, I should've said not to release that"),
and having people that can catch things that shouldn't be published
(like the names of people who've donated to Debian) seems worthwhile.

I'm not really seeing how much more straightforward that makes it anyway?
