Again, I am not asking for more than giving a chance for people to talk with
human beings before submitting an errata.  It's their choice, obviously, but I
do not see the downside of kindly explaining that beforehand interactions with
the people who knows this stuff may be beneficial for everybody.

In fact the only technical problem I see here is how to give them the means to
communicate with these persons, if they wish to do so.
