To be honest, I utterly despise all the sequences whose nature is not 
strictly mathematic.

So, to summarize my reaction to your latest proposals: no seq. based on 
Korean language, no seq. based on planetary data, no seq. based on Erdos 
numbers, no seq.based on properties of OEIS itself, no seq. based on 
years (prizes, programming languages, etc.).

Maybe I'm not a good judge, but I think OEIS should refrain from 
becoming a receptacle of trivia and that the non-mathematical sequences 
already in OEIS are enough.
