Just as a "data point" in this discussion: There are people out there
who are happy to issue death threats to anyone who is seen to be
deciding something not in their favour.

I'm not saying that this should automatically top any transparency
requirements, and there hasn't been a board decision to limit
transparency about this, but when discussing transparency in matters
like this you have to take into account that transparency *can*
occasionally mean that bullying becomes easier, and that people who
would otherwise have voted yes or no suddenly vote abstain just to keep
out of trouble.
