INQUIRY: Should there be a network for Pacific History?

Hi all,

as I was browsing the networks, I noticed that there are some "ocean-based" networks (obviously, Mediterranean and Atlantic at least), but no Pacific one. I know of course the debates about the mere fact of the "pacific world(s)" existence, but would not it be a way to try something out?
