I simply thought of a sentence that could be used as the marker for the
start of something. I might as well have used Kennedy's statement about
sending a man to the moon.

Quick show of hands here; how many of the people who have done this are
running a for-profit organization? Mind you, there's nothing wrong with
doing that; it's just that as the original poster said, it is no longer
possible to assume that the purpose of these collections is academic. All
of them are, AFAIK, but in a decade, I'm sure we can expect to see XTs
with documentation sealed in clear polished plastic (tony cringes). They
will be repainted to the original color (or, better yet, the limited
edition blue and gold colors) and sold for thousands.
