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.
