Actually since I already have most of this list - we built it for our 
operations at USTiming.ORG we might be persuaded to provide a copy of 
the contact model to the TZ operations. What I would propose is the 
creation of a CONTACTS LIST I-D which I and our team can work with KRE 
and Group Management on the submission. It and a formal practice model 
for how to contact these parties would be appropriate for this endeavor 
and I will take responsibility for that as a deliverable if the group 
would allow that.
