Which is exactly the point I'm opposing.

It's not that I don't want my page up there, I either want none or all committers
to be on there, all equally represented.  Otherwise people are going to think
exactly what Andy wrote as (the first part of) a suggested page description:

"These are the homepages and voices of the Apache Community.  These 
pages represent the committers and members of the Apache Software 

Which is simply not the case if not all committers and members are represented
on there.
