Yes, because they can add to their list of contributions and at some 
point apply to become contrib members.  The access to the record should 
be email addr and their passwd.  They should be able to have the passwd 
mailed to them if they forget it (a la freshmeat etc.)

Hmm.  The thinking here was that the record name should be the name of 
the organization.  What do you think?  I guess we can go both ways: the 
record itself is the or, or the member has his real name and represents 
the org.  I don't know what's better.

Not really: they can be approved as a non-contrib member while waiting 
for approval of contrib membership.  The rest of the things you've 
listed are OK; I'll add them.

I'll repost another version tomorrow.
