And just how am I going to convince, say, university
Vice-Chancellors or CEOs of famous trademark holders, to
follow this list as a form of consultation?  They're hardly
going to be interested in one posting in a hundred.

They don't have the time or the interest to follow the list
-- but, as Geoff says, they'll be one of the parties annoyed
enough to kill the process if they're not consulted.

In summary, using the e-mail list as a form of concultation
barely begins to touch the number of people that need to be
consulted.

Rather, using the list to develop a proposal, documenting
it, and starting to negotiate with an open mind with the
interested parties using the standard draft proposal and
presentation mechanisms seems more likely to succeed.

It's nice to see that this is what Kate and others have
started to do.

Best wishes,
glen
