Some employers actually employ people from the community to work on Open Source projects.
They should also be recognized.

Regardless, I have a different view on this. It would be a nice for individuals to fill in

Perhaps this could be displayed in the people directory? It is along the lines of allowing
individuals to declare their location which ASF already allows[1].
