Thanks, Sam.  I know I appreciate your efforts, and I hope others do as well.

Another avenue to consider, is that of a contribution to the TC.  For example, suppose (picking an example at random) you have a great interest in the relationship between standards and interop and WTO regulations.  You wanted to get it into the TC charter, but it is out of scope (remember OASIS policy strictly limits what can be in the charter) and further you don't have enough time to do it right.  So instead of getting it into the charter, you take your time writing it up and submitting it to the TC as a member or public contribution.  No need to burden your site with these items, but it is something that others might consider.
