Hrmm I wasn't picking on Web Roma in a negative way... I just 
don't think development of it or anything as crucial should be 
done in a piecemeal un-resourced manner.TEI-C seems to believe it 
isn't in the job of producing software but then so much of the 
infrastructure of it is built on software (mostly thanks to you) 
which I believe not supporting is detrimental to the TEI overall. 
  I'd prefer it if the TEI-C decided that X, Y, and Z were 
important enough to fund and then just did so. Or am I deluded 
here and is TEI-C already funding the development of Roma and 
Stylesheets, etc?
