Yes, and the same goes for the future ones, since they may not even know yet
that they will be whatsnew maintainers.  Or maybe they aren't born yet (let's
hope for a long life of Python 3...).

The large chunk of rules appeared in 2.6, where AMK still was maintainer.
But even in the whatsnew for 2.4, there is this:

.. Don't write extensive text for new sections; I'll do that.
.. Feel free to add commented-out reminders of things that need
.. to be covered.  --amk

But in any case, they are certainly valid for the current whatsnew -- even
if Raymond likes to grumble about too expansive commits :)
