I'd be happy to write the first draft and coordinate comments and changes
to it. Of course it would be a group project as I'd need to consult lots of
people - attorneys, community leaders, a discussion list, etc.
I suspect that some of the things I am worried about fail the current OSD
under "use" restrictions, but not as explicitly as I'd like.
