I'm very much a reader/lurker on this list, so I don't know much about 
the bigger structures.

I'm very much in favor of a statement along these lines.

My question is about the teeth to it. When we look to who it will come 
from, do they have the ability to kick offenders off the list, or some 
other mechanism of response? Action seems to be needed now, and so in 
addition to a statement, I'd like to see behavior contrary to the 
statement having visible consequences. I think that'd add significance 
to whatever statement appears.
