Dear Danny

Thanks for your message; I'm forwarding it to the GO-friends mailing 
list as I'm now no longer officially working for GO (I've become full 
time Scientific Outreach Officer at the EBI) the collective wisdom of 
my colleagues in the GO consortium is much, much greater than mine.

Best wishes
