i don't understand why they should be removed even if replaced by a common
list:

(1) citing authors in the source files they contribute helps future efforts
to research issues
(2) citing authors in the source files they contribute helps in addressing
any IPR issues that might arise
(3) moving author citations to a common list will likely result in a
disconnect between the author and the works they contributed, as the binding
will tend to be lost
(4) where is the harm in citing authors in the original contributions?

overall, i don't see any upside to removing them, but only downside

if I were a voting member in this PMC, I would vote -1
