I described my rationale on last Tuesday's call.

Basically, since this is the "W3C Process Document", I feel it is 
sensible to define somewhere in the process document who W3C is.  It 
does not need to be in this section, but it should be somewhere.

So the Host's role in the process is at the "meta" level, they comprise 
the definition of what the phrase W3C means.  Without a definition of 
the Hosts there is no anchoring for the entire document.
