I think there are two different levels of collaboration that we're talking 
about here.

If you want to collaborate on the creation of a single object then you can 
do that along with others through the news groups and/or through a web page 
if you want to set that up to manage the task.

On the other hand. To assemble a bundle of objects it's probably excessive 
to expect the person bundling the objects together to also manage incomplete 
objects. It's going to be touch enough taking objects from different people 
and giving them a basic degree of consistency.

These two levels of collaboration can work just fine together or separately. 
If you want to manage collaboration on an individual object you can then 
submit tested and documented versions either to Ben's bundle (if it seems 
consistent with the theme), or directly to the object collection.
