I think a list could be gathered with a port folio and verifiable historical
info on each provider.  This way, people could pick them based on criteria
set forth in the list.

I used to think that if I went to the web site of a perveyor of
accessibility services and found their site to be lacking that I might not
chat them up, but I have slipped that notion to a let's have a chat anyway
and see where it leads.

I do have a list of links. Some have suggested themselves directly
(though I find it very English that such self promotion is not public),
so I do have a number of suggestions.

Re a 'trusted' host, to hold a list, probably without direct
recommendation, for the US, who would you suggest has sufficient
