For the same reason I don't publish personal emails to me: I respect  
others' privacy.  I believe it's their decision to make, not mine.

I don't believe anyone has said they are only willing to participate  
in the -admin list secretly.  But a few haven't said anything at all,  
I assume because they're busy people.  I expect they'll be happy to  
add their names to the public registry when they get around to  
checking their email relating to the volunteer position.  Or maybe  
they'll see you've been calling them "secret police" with a  
connotation [1] that they would take someone away in the middle of  
the night to be murdered, and decide it was a mistake volunteering in  
the first place.  Either way, give it a little time and I expect the  
published list will soon reflect everyone on the list.
