How about we begin with a simple list in wiki markup, and see if the
project grows sufficiently to justify the creation of a map.

After all, Canonical uses a simple list, and their list is a lot bigger
than ours right now.


While on the subject, I think it is important to ensure no overlap
between the two things - the ubuntu.com page clearly lists commercial
support contacts. If the uk team is to create a second list, it should
be limited to free support only, I think, with a link to the relevant
commercial support page.
