I've had an impression that these Wiki entries were written by
people with names of mentors (who are different from the proposers)
already assigned to them, and if an unfortunate student picked an
unrealistic one, these mentor candidates were too nice to push back
and decline, saying "it is unrealistic", leaving the student and
proposal without any mentor.
