	and, and, and, - how about adding the names of the reviewers **on** 
	the journal article as well (replace a dissenting reviewer by the
	journal editor when a split decision is over-ruled).  
	This would likely insure *better* reviews as well as give credit
	to those who perform such thankless tasks as journal reviews.

Merry Christmas,
