[... good stuff that I completely agree with ...]

| another.  Such memberships wouldn't be free, a cost of perhaps $500 or
| so would bring it well within the bounds of a book-publishing budget
| while discouraging frivolity.

I think that's a really excellent suggestion.  And the cost should
come out of the publisher, up front.
