That sure. And that is not the website.

Emacs is not a product of a company that tries to hide authors.

Website is not git and not Emacs package with file AUTHORS. Website is 
presentation to the world including those people who do not use Emacs.

Including those who write about Emacs while not using it. It is main source of 
information about Emacs.

Crediting people on the website shall be prominent.

It is not for me. I can see contributors in the git.
