The reason i asked about the stability of the WMS links in the wiki, was 
I was thinking about setting up a GeoMoose interface for the WMS calls 
for each layer, combining that with Firebug would give some good real 
(world network speed) information metrics for users, either during 
and/or after the compitition, BTW, how much/many of the services will 
stay inplace after the fact?  Might be useful during the thing as well.
