Hi Sander. 
Given that Dan has confirmed (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Apr/1521.html) that at least a part of this conversation began because of a misunderstanding on my part, I suggest we take it off-line. I'm completely happy to discuss alternative methodologies for sampling the web, and think that I have some ideas that may prove useful to you here, but I think we've moved a bit far afield for the interest of all those 300 mail inboxes I keep imagining that suffer our every keystroke. (I must start wearing my reading glasses). Sean Fraser and Zdenko and you all seem to have strong interest in these issues, (based on  your responses and on http://esw.w3.org/topic/HtmlTaskBrainstorm ) so maybe a smaller conversation makes sense?
