I think that none of the ABI extensions in question are anything to do 
with Linux, the kernel.  Rather, they are ABI extensions for userspace in 
the GNU system, which apply the same under multiple kernels (but some of 
them may well not apply to Android systems using the Linux kernel, for 
example, if the Bionic C library and dynamic linker lack the relevant 
features).  Thus it would be more appropriate for a mailing list to be 
hosted on sourceware or Savannah, and for any resulting documents to refer 
to GNU, not to Linux.
