Subject: RE: ebXML list of participants

Well,it's not an amalgamation of listserv lists, which only have email
addresses; it's the name and company name (but not email address) of each
person who is subscribed. We get this from the innformation submitted on the
subscription form. We're building some functionality at OASIS that could,
incidentally, be used to manage this, but this won't be done for a while.

I'm just wondering about the usefulness of this information on the web site.
If it's useful we'll devote the labour to make it work; I just want to make
sure that we should.
