It surely should. As I said, it looks like that page is not really up to
date. We can proceed to update it as suggested in the page, but I don't
want to create too much burden on the -www people. I guess it would be
better for us (i.e. this list) to find out a mechanism to make a proper
census of derivatives, collect the results and then propose them as a
batch change to that page.

Rhonda: (since you're an active www team member and also on this list)
what do you think it would work best to update, and later on *keep* up
to date that page?
