I like this.  You are right that my other scenario came almost straight 
from mozilla.  When ever you are ready, I am too.

I can also keep a static version of the current roadmap on the main 
website - out of the wiki and then let roadmap discussion go in the 
wiki.  So I see two roadmap links - one for the current set and one for

one that is hosted on G's home dir), let me know.  I can move it (you 
can move) or whatever.  Right now, I am just looking for the location 
URI to put into another doc.
