Please do share with the whole list.  or at least add me as an interested 
party.

How the information is used will influence how much information is shared. 
 For example, if WAI EOWG uses the information to find/post additional 
unique techniques and best practices, without linking to the whole web 
site is easier to do / respond to, than risking the public review (and 
possible debate) of the site that was improved and avoid the part that 
perhaps wasn't improved.  I would be also interested in more 'best 
practices' of chunks of HTML/Web technology examples that combine several 
techniques to make a complete UI component, such as a good search and 
results page, a good accessible sub-navigation, a good or best practice 
list of news articles, etc. - things that developers, authoring tools, 
checking tools, education, and design guides could use to make a template 
or example components.
