One reason not to cross-post to list is that people confuse the  
confidentiality levels, leading to inappropriate posting of material to  
those for whom it was never intended.

If the CG (or for that matter the AC) want to request that the AB do  
something, they are welcome to do so. However the way things are  
structured, whether the AB follows any given request is entirely up to
