Considering the extended deadline is close, I'll leave the author line
as is for the submission process (minus Joao as requested), since I'd
like to check with everyone whether or not they're OK with being
included (plus affiliations etc).

However, I'll update this as per discussion as we go along.

I hope that's acceptable to everyone in the short term!

If there are not more comments or improvements, I'll submit the attached
abstract in a few hours.
