Hi Ed.

Yes - it's specific to the Department unfortunately in that sense. 
However your reply has got me thinking about how we would push content 
out of the respository into the NLA's web archive or the archives at 
National Archives. And Web Services are part of the scope - I'd love to 
discuss this more with you after I come up to speed on the RFC.

Thanks for the thoughts :)
