Great thoughts.
I certainly did not mean to make this process more complicated, but I understand what David is saying.  Patrick D. actually makes some good points about the benefits of modularization.  I was just thinking about this last week and though SVG is coming along nicely it definitely could be done a lot faster (but not better) if we had a more autocratic hierarchical structure to prevent the balkanization headaches (no offense to our SVG friends in the Balkan region).  So finding that balance and developing efficient and meaningful communication streams is one of our greatest challenge of this global democratic age, and really also more generally in the new world order that is emerging this century - see Mark Juergensmeyer's bright thoughts on the topic - http://www.juergensmeyer.com/

I have always built custom surveys/polls from scratch for companies over the last 15 years using either PHP or .Net, but we will want something more robust, so if we use polling or survey tools for any step of this process, we can consider using something like:
http://polldaddy.com/features/  which has a lot of great built-in features including:
-- question branching logic 
-- multi-lingual support
-- and I think they help with filtering and preventing spam, which is a serious concern these days.
-- and I think Poll Daddy gives us the license to host and customize it all we want so it might be a good starting point anyway.

   all the best,
      Jon
