I'll add my thoughts on Michael's real questions later, but I need to
clarify one small thing.  The Moore Foundation has generously made available
nearly 1.5 million USD over a 30-month period to address several aspects of
the operation of TDWG.  This includes some funding for investigation of
GUIDs, and there is some additional funding for this from GBIF, but the
available funds add up to much less than USD 1.5M.
