I had exactly the same thought but judging by past experience (in this 
case as editor) that is very difficult to do for the BP document. In 
contrast to the other subgroups, the BP is something that incorporates 
all the feedback from the different subgroups and our endless 
discussions before we split into these subgroups. Hence the document 
covers sensors, observations, coverage, discovery, our discussions on 
the use cases, CRS, and so forth. Thus, and in contrast to what I would 
recommend for the subgroups, I like the idea that everybody is *invited* 
to contribute but only those make it onto the final author list that 
actively use this change to be part of the paper writing, editing, 
discussions, and so forth. I am also in favor us listing the editors 
first and then everybody in alphabetic order.

Best,
Jano
