The NOSS triads are already included in section 10.3 of the FAQ,
which is being written by John Pike and Jay Respler:

10.0  What are some of the satellites that can be seen?  (Jay Respler)
10.1  The Ubiquitous Cosmos (Bart De Pontieu)
10.1.1  Cosmos J-flashers (Bart De Pontieu)
10.1.2  Other Cosmos "families" (Bart De Pontieu)
10.2  Weatherbirds: NOAA, DMSP, Midas, Meteor (???)
10.3  Spysats: Lacrosse, NOSS and other "USA" birds (John Pike/Jay Respler)
10.4  Research Sats: UARS, HST, SeaSat, OAO (???)
10.5  Orbiting Space Museum: Vanguard and Explorer (Jay Respler)

By the way, sections 10.2 and 10.4 are now the only remaining
sections of the FAQ that have not been claimed.  If you would
like to volunteer to write either or both, please contact me.

   > Can a FAQ section provide annual updates of "predictions"? 

I don't know what you mean by "annual updates of 'predictions'".
However, unless there is great interest on SeeSat-L in pursuing
this, I suggest that further discussion be continued on UseSat-L
and/or privately with the owners of section 10.3.
