consumers. Good to know what is available, but what I am proposing is that
the professional genealogists take the bull by the horns and tell, formally,
the vendors what they need to be offering. With no sales pitch interaction.
Just technological feasibility.

In my experience, vendors love to hear feedback, and then just offer what
they feel like anyway.

What I propose needs to be a body where professional genealogists are in the
drivers seat. Not the vendors. We all see how that is working out. ;-)
