Thanks.

IMHO, this should be done on ESW Wiki [1] as it is (i) public, and (ii) has
a defined access control policy (see also [2]).

Just for the record: I'm not an utterly huge fan of doing it via a Wiki (a
member-controlled page in the W3C space would be more appropriate, I think),
but better than nothing.

Cheers,
      Michael
