Wouldn't it be a problem for the C++ commitee?
My understanding it that the mailing list is voluntarily kept closed to
a lot of problem like trolling or out-of-scope subjects that occur
naturally in
open communities (even boost). I might be wrong, I didn't read any official
info about this.

But allowing this large definition of boosters to be able to mail the
C++ committee mailing list
would then open a breach for them, wouldn't it?
