But I interpreted your earlier comment as indicating that Google and Yahoo were irrelevant and/or non-representative for the sake of this exercise. But they write code and deploy mail systems that touch hundreds of millions of people. So I'm trying to understand who you would consider relevant and representative for the sake of gauging interest in this use case.
I'd be happy to talk to them about it, once I know who they are.
