I guess there are a number of obvious options for delivery.
Where should our priorities lie?
So, please, mail me (jpo (at) ebi.ac.uk) if you have some thoughts, or would consider yourself to be one of these types of users. Contact and input from developing economies is especially welcome.

However, it should give some idea of the diversity and distribution of sequences within the databases.
