I had to come up with some sort of way of deciding who would end up on the 
acknowledgements list, otherwise all the people contributing to 
discussions on Slashdot, Digg, Reddit, in the blogosphere, on mailing 
lists everywhere, etc, would all end up on the list, and half the spec 
would just be a list of names. As it is, at least there's a simple 
criteria that I can use, and I can say with certainty that the people who 
are acknowledged are people without whom the spec would definitely have 
been poorer.

Anyway, this is by far the least important aspect of the spec.
