Maybe it's specifically about the electronics industry. If so, then your rationale makes perfect sense.  If not, then what are best practices for opening mechanical, structural, etc. designs?

Hi Tom,
  In what way(s) do you see OSHWA focussing just on the electronics?   It's important (to me personally, at least) that OSHWA should try to broaden our reach to the larger domain of hardware in general.
