That sounds like a discussion point more than a proposal.  A proposal might say:

1) What page will contain this information?

2) Is updating the page a manual or automated process?

3) Who will do the updating?

4) How are you determining who is on the PPMC?  Based on vote?  Based
on subscribing to ooo-private?  Based on an authorization file?

I might be a +1 or -1 depend on answers to the above questions.  For
example, I'd be against a manual process that yields the wrong answer.

But I do like the idea in general of listing the PPMC members.  Or
even better have a single list that is annotated per roles, e.g. PPMC
member, committer, mentor.
