Michel -

That might help for transfers that are completed, but does nothing about facilitators that aren’t really qualified and never manage to get a transfer completed – despite representations of their purported capabilities to do so.

To the extent that you wish some form of public reporting for transfers, it’s simple enough to achieve if there’s community consensus for such - summit a policy proposal if you wish this considered by the community.
