... just like there are good reasons not to publish yourself in a public
catalogue (such as haskellers.com) at all.

I have nothing against anonymity. I voted against requirement of real names

But in this particular case, the whole point to be in the listing is to
present yourself. So I find the above proposal very reasonable.
