I think it would be a wonderful idea to make these papers available via
WWW. As you correctly state, there is little research on the topic and
what has been done is difficult to access by many of the people who need
this type of data. I know that in California public library budgets
have been reduced, so WWW access to key information would be a great
equalizer. It would be wonderful if, as standard procedure, we would
all begin to think abour making our work available through WWW.
