I concur on both your points: that no one, prior to elections, is in a
position to impose arbitrarily such a verification requirement; and that the
elected officers will be the appropriate persons to perform the list scrub.

Which is not to say that those officers should not also consider all
verification proposals that have been made to date, looking toward
maintaining the integrity of the membership roll as the organization
