There is nothing in the note above that names Harald as list moderator.  So,
I suggested that the delegation decision needs to be made explicit.  He
replied with this, which seems to contradict the note you cited:

Michael and others have suggested that an approved RFC should be changed.
If the text remains unchanged the decision to delegate list moderation
duties should be documented explicitly.  That's what needs to be settled.
