I'd like to see a little this rumored "fire house" before we take the
step of creating a dedicated list for it.  My guess is there are few
requests that actually require permission and many others that merely
require that we point to FAQ.

ooo-marketing might be the right list to steer the requests to for
now.  This would be appropriate because many of the co-marketing
opportunities, e.g., a new AOOo-derived product might be linked to on
our site, along with other derivatives.  Books and other things might
also get links.
