The "acceptable terms of services" criterion is already given by the
C4 clause:

  The site's terms of service contain no odious conditions.

Collaboration is a desirable thing.   However, the issue
here is whether it's desirable to push (and then trust) the
responsibility of evaluating terms of services for odious conditions to
a third party.  IMHO, it's a complex step and I'm not sure it'd be
a good move.  Using the to help us evaluating TOSs should be
OK, though.

We've published the criteria on, and we'll publish the
evaluations there as well.  That's is simply hand-edited HTML by the
GNU webmasters.  For now, there is no compelling reason (I can think of)
to move it to a dedicated platform.  Can you think of any?
