[IAEP] My problem with your OUI is that I can't see what problem it is solving.

Just a side note I want to synchronize with others...

I presume that many (or most?) of people treat SL primarily as
an organization to support Sugar Learning Environment assuming that
it starts (from desktop environment point of view) from Sugar Shell
and ends by Sugar Activities (i.e., applications to launch from Sugar

Personally, I was thinking the same when I started contributing to Sugar
development in 2008. But from that time, my focus was shifted from Sugar
Shell centric to more general educational/learning view. Right now, I'm
treating SL as Apache Foundation[1] (which was started, though I don't
know the story, as HTTP Web server but mutated to enterprise-level
software foundation) for educational/learning software (presuming that
Sugar Shell is not the only targeted environment, like Apache web server
is not a start point for Apache Foundation).

I understand that I might "misuse" SL and better to switch my centre of
development to another, more general, community. But, if it is not
misusing, (b) is not valid.
