You are right, the whole "notability" standard at Wikipedia has been f'd up for years. Someone notable today, may be much less notable than someone from 100 years ago, but the person from a century ago might not be as notable to people today. Instead of trying to build a repository of accurate knowledge and information, Wikipedia is more concerned about building up fiefdoms of power for the editors and managers, which is too bad.

"astronauts used in trips to the moon in the 1960s."

Just one point about the summary, not just the 1960s, there were more trips to the moon using Apollo in the 1970s than in the 1960s:
1960s Apollo moon trips: 8, 10, 11, 12 (2 landings 11, 12, and 2 circumnavigations)

1970s: 13, 14, 15, 16,17 (4 landings, not Apollo 13 obviously)

(There were other Apollo missions that were not moon trips, 7, 9 for example that were in earth orbit, Apollo-Soyuz etc).

And if he is really concerned about the "free market" not doing enough, there is always the option of starting a competing service that is more "free market" and responsive. Yes, that costs something, but that is the nature of the "free market" - it isn't free to everyone, someone's time costs something, always.

Perhaps prioritizing based on when a person registered themselves to be a DONOR would be helpful too. This would encourage people to be donors and eliminate some of the issues for matches because there would be many more people who were donating.

E.g. Someone registered to be a donor when they were 18 and needed something at 60, would be placed ahead of someone who registered at 59.5 (or not at all) and needed one at 60. This would encourage many, many people to donate, alleviating the shortage and finding many more matches. It would likely result in the time of registration rarely or never coming in to play.
