if that is the only purpose, then it is a lot easier to look at the mail
list configuration files, which are available to any infrastructure or
infra-interest committer of which there are plenty in this project.

All that needs to be done is whenever somebody stops being a moderator
(which happens with a jira ticket) check it there are still sufficient

So for that purpose we really do not need an extra list.

   I say the purpose is for transparency and sustainability in a way that
   these arrangements are visible to our public and interested parties
   without depending on membership in or ceremonies of any priesthood.
      The effort involved in maintenance is out of a commitment to
   provide that without requiring tacit knowledge of infrastructure
   operations or anything else.
      Of course, it would be handy to have documentation on how one adds 
   and removes administrators of this kind where newcomers could find it. 
   That would be much more involved and it is not being asked for.
