  1. API key requested.  I’m particularly interested in this:

    “..[F]uture releases, the site will include APIs for receiving comment submissions from other sites.” 

    That could open up a whole range of options for people to not only review proposed regs, but to comment on them using the medium of their choice.

    Who knows – they may even get me fired up enough to pump out some language bindings for them. Wouldn’t it be cool if they had a GitHub repo with a whole mess of libraries for accessing the API.
