Mexican AM stations going to FM

I recently located COFETEL's search page for broadcasting decisions in Mexico. (You might regard COFETEL -- Comisión Federal de Telecomunicaciones -- as the "Mexican FCC") I've been able to compile a list of Mexican AM stations which have been granted permission to move to FM. I do not promise this list is complete -- the website above doesn't seem to contain listings prior to 2010. Note that some rather large stations -- like XEWA-540 and XEDM-1580 -- are on this list.
