Yeah....I blew it.....trying to do two things at once. I meant it in the
context of my comment earlier today:

"Exopounding on your last thought. I think it is very important that we come
up with a central portal for this network of organizations that can provide
a roadmap and point lay persons in the right direction. Even a unified
search engine which comvers all of the sites would be useful. I think the
reason the technical aspects were focused on (and I think a lot of IT issues
even more so) is that it would be nice to know that in any situation the
information you are getting is authoritative and complete. in regards to
having a central portal with common search and other capabilities that" 

In reference to Carl's restructuring document.

For what it is worth, the current tao is quite prominently linked from the
"overview of the IETF" page, which in turn is the first link on the front
