I disagree. This matter is important enough that it should be announced 
and explained to as many mappers as possible. Actually, I cannot think 
of any matter more important for OSM.

Especially when you expect people to happily vote in favour of a 
proposal it might be a good idea to inform them ahead of time rather 
than annoy them by keeping them out of the loop until it is too late to 

In my opinion, a statement about this that is understandable to a 
non-lawyer belongs not only on talk, but onto the national mailing 
lists, onto the forum, onto the wiki news, the login page and any other 
place where you can reach mappers.
