Getting back to this very late, but perhaps we should do more of a song 
and dance about this achievement? We should take advantage of ICANN and 
Göran's new Ambassador role to show that we believe this is a strong way 
for communities and companies to move forward. Maybe an ICANN blog can 
be written on successful implementations of UA in huge code bases?
