    What's the purpose of this list?
    Just a little question I think should be kept in mind as the debate
    on imagery data seems to continue.
    This list, in the 10+ years I have been subscribed, seems to me to
    have a very clearly defined goal and purpose, and as such has some
    (strict?) guidelines to achieve that.
    One purpose I see is for the dissemination and discussion of _data_.
    I think we need to keep in mind that imagery of satellites, in this
    context, is a form of data.
    As is the case in any science, raw data is crucial to the understanding
    of what it being studied. Also, any form of data must be presented in
    an agreed upon format so that all users of said data can do so in an
    easy and efficient manner.
    Just a thought....
