        While maintaining a list, and passing it on to the next office
 holder or even posting it in a public place is  darned good practice
 for a DPL, I am unsure if the constitution should write it in
 stone. Can we assume we can pick leaders who an adequately perform
 their office? If not, someone shall have to grep through the archives
 and reconstruct a list after a negligent (and incompetent) DPL lost
 it. (I would strongly recommend a web page that reflects currently
 authorized organizations, and non-DPL's can maintain that, based on
 public announcements).
