General readers of freebsd-current isn't our project management body.

I've seen some core members admit they no longer read freebsd-current
because of the high S-N ratio.  So sending something to freebsd-current
assuming all Core or TRB members will see it is in fallacy.

I think you presume to know too much about what all the Core and TRB
members know.  I think you should be pushing this agenda (so publicly
implying full authority to do this), only after consulting with one of
Core/TRB of your intentions.

It is well known you prefer drive-by commits, ride roughshod over, and
acting unilaterally.  I don't think all of the project does.  phkBSD is
around the other corner, thanks.
