Site Profiles to be expanded to include drop list categories such as:
* Gov Dept (official e-mail)
* Local Gov (official e-mail)
* State Entity (official e-mail)
* Private Advocate (private e-mail)
* FOSS Vendor (company mail)
* Other (private e-mail)

So that we all know who we are speaking to, are able to communicate to all registered FOSS vendors or Gov employees etc for surveys. It will also help define roles for access to specific forum areas. We must remember we could also have citizens and others registering to comment or get information.

In principle access to information should be open to all without copyright, but certain parts of the discussion forums may be closed eg. for sensitive discussions around gov officials responding to lobbying or where discussion could eliminate some of our FOSS vendors from participating in a bid, etc.
