As the guy who created the education project on OOo, and who has long championed the goal of
not only helping thru education new contributors but also of using education to promote FOSS,
OOo and the ODF, I naturally think it's vital to have it. 

But what would be its remit? 

I would suggest we clarify goals. I would also like for us to work, whenever possible, with
Apache's extant efforts in this area, and with cousin projects, like Mozilla. The more we
team up, coordinate, collaborate, the more beer (not just speech) will be free.
