I'd like to add a voice of support to Philip's suggestion about petitioning
the TUG Board to adopt XeTeX as a formal TUG project.  To be honest, I was
startled that it doesn't already have such recognition.  There's a big
community of us using XeTeX and it really should be close to the heart of
TUG, and to have access to whatever support, recognition and responsibility
as TUG can give.
