+1 ... sort of like a press inquiries address, but offered as part of an
already useful document?  That way we are asking for targeted questions
and not inviting wide-open requests that are mainly covered in the
features pages.

We could also find a way to cross-tie the SSS with specific features, so
one has a press-friendly approach and there is a reciprocating link to
find the deeper developer-oriented content.
