Julie, it would have to be hosted by an entity that nations, their courts, and corporations would recognize as being authoritative. Otherwise, it's just some group's notion of best practices—not a resource for ensuring compliance with laws or conformance to standards.

So who hosts it is far more important than how it's hosted.
