More views on the cover page issues for us to consider for those of you
that do not recieve the fax list

FYI.... In the absence of charter status I'm going to go ahead and post to
this list very shortly a first pass at a "Goals and Requirements" document

I'd like to get some feed back and comments here before I resubmit it to
the ID Editors as a personal ID.
