You've made the initial contacts here on this list that matter.  There 
are a few different directions we can go, and I'll try to respond 
privately with a few additional suggestions.

I would suggest that you look around the Meta Wiki 
(http://meta.wikimedia.org/) and revise and augument the existing 
proposals that are already there, as I mentioned earlier.

This effort is clearly in need of a "reboot" or some restarting of the 
effort, as earlier efforts have clearly stalled out.  The main thing I 
wanted you to know was that this is a recurring proposal idea and has 
been identified by multiple individuals as something valuable to 
consider.  It is unfortunately the efforts to get this accomplished have 
not hit the traction necessary to get this going in a fashion that 
apparently you and I both agree upon here.

Hopefully, with a little bit of effort, you can help add some leadership 
here that is needed.
