One of the biggest problem is how we could send the census out - by its definition, everyone would answer it but, that clearly wouldn't happen. If there is a list of email addresses, we can send out unique url's or, we could allow users to sign up or, fill it out anonymously. Any ideas?

It should clarify whether it is a census operated by Wikimedia 
Foundation, by an editor, or by a group of editors.
It is important to clarify this, in particular with regards to data 
mining (privacy policy etc...)
