i cannot agree. please notice we do not have to announce osgeo
rationale, but we can e.g. display current events without any
involvement from page authors. they need to put a code once, and later
we can change the content centrally. we can also propose to include
the code on other pages, not only these which belong to osgeo, to help
us promote osgeo-related actions.
