 The /hosting/ page listing is entirely arbitrary, as it says on the
 sidebar itself, and it's not intended on being either a complete listing
 or guide as to what host one should choose.

 The page specifies that most hosting environments meet the requirements
 for WordPress, and makes no claim that those are the only hosts worth of

 Ultimately, the listing is at the discretion of Matt. I'm not going to
 link to it, but there's articles that can be found after the last noticed
 refresh of the hosting listing which highlights just that.

 While you've raised some valid points and ideas in the long post, the
 simple response is that right now that's not going to happen, and if it
 were, a much more succinct proposal run by the
 [https://make.wordpress.org/hosting make/hosting] team and matt first
 would be needed.

 For now, I'm closing this ticket as `wontfix` as there's nothing
 actionable here right now for the meta team, Trac isn't the place for
 research and discussion about the whys and hows of the pages existence,
 and quite honestly otherwise this ticket is only going to sit here for the
 next year unanswered since it's the wrong forum for it.
