The "upstream" author in the context I intended it would represent
authors of any document that the LDP wished to use. The idea suggested
was that LDP people could take these documents and munge them into
whatever form the LDP required... these people would be the analogs of
the Debian packagers ..

I personally can't see any good reason why not. I'd like 5c for every
time I'd been asked the same question again and again and again and
again. If people wishing to contribute feedback had the opportunity to
search to see if that feedback had already been given (with a response)
then it might save everyone a lot of effort.
