Hi Paul,
Yes, all the current rsyncers will be contacted with details such as
you're requesting.  Your suggestions are very reasonable and helpful

Regarding making a case for value, you may want to compare what it
would cost to filter without SURBLs.  That would also be very useful
feedback to us about our pricing.

Cheers and thanks,

Jeff C.
