We do have to be careful that the list does not bitrot, and that there is 
a balance of big and smaller companies.

The reason why we currently do not have a list is because in the past it 
was seen as a way to monetize that list and I think that still is blocking 
any progress.

The problem with asking money to appear on the list is that you loose the 
balance of all players in the market and you are advertising those that 
are big enough to pay the fee.
