Thank you for your very good Feedback Cameron and Jorge!

I created your feedback points as issues for the OSGeo Wiki SMW model 
repository [1]. So you can track the progress, some of them are a bit 
tricky, I think I will need some days. I plan to add the changes during 
the coming weekend into the OSGeo wiki.

Some answers to questions or feedback, I did not implemented already or 
created an issue on github for, are inline below.

can set one up and send the credentials of list.

The field is optional. Maybe someone want to give the address of his 
work place?

Interesting, but I don't know any implementation for this problem for

This one is quite tricky, because I have to find out how to trigger an 
update of the members data from a users (unrelated) activity on the 
wiki. It should be possible dynamically through the API, but I'm not 
100% sure yet on how to do it.
