It makes sense to ensure that the solution actually solves the problem
before we simply implement it.

If we really need such a file it would probably also make more sense
to have it auto-generated from git commit headers, which could use a
standardized format.  This would actually provide more useful data
around authorship/copyright than a generic file with a list of names
anyway.  Certainly standards like SPDX should be leveraged.  These
tags could be optional in git, but anybody who wants to use these tags
could do so and tools that parse them could be created by those
interested in this information.
