As the feedback has been IMO very positive (well, if we abstract over 
certain implications of the name of the initiative in english ;) and nobody 
came up with objections, I now consider it safe to say this initiative is 
being approved of by the Wine community.

I wanted to thank everybody who provided feedback and comments. Plus, a 
happy new year to all of you!
