You can't just do that. Bernstein has to want to do it, and agree, and if you don't want to look silly that has to happen before his nomination is posted to the mailing list.



Yes, on second thought, DJB would probably have much more impact working in a group that's creating crypto standards rather than just reviewing other people's proposals.


For what it's worth: that's what he already does. For example, Bernstein is one of the coordinators for CAESAR, the competition for new authenticated bulk ciphers.

I think that was salient's point -- he's already creating crypto standards and he's likely better suited to that than simply reviewing other's proposals.
