> I assume the person or company that pushes the notice can be one of the ACKs is this correct?

Maybe a very minor point, but someone that is working for a company could Ack independent of the company if so stated. Just be careful how you word the requirement, something like ‘Only one Ack per company or independent developer’ 

As an open community, we should avoid sorting people per company.
I prefer talking about different areas of interest.
Anyway considering acks is a matter of confidence.
We cannot have strict rules, but we can provide some guidelines.
