Well, there are a number of people who would need to be consulted first and
then would have to work on this.  The first ones are the Crown, to see if
they will accept recommendations from this medium and if so, what info they
wish included in the recommendations.  Then the kingdom web minister to see
if he can set up the requisite site and the Clerk of Precedence to see if
he can link his database (without it allowing some outside party to alter
the current info) and finally, I would suppose the chronicler, although the
calendar is already linked to the kingdom web page.  For that matter, so is
the OP, but I don't know if the search engine could be configured to
automatically spit out a listing through such a link.  (For much more
advanced technical minds than mine...)

So, I would suggest starting there and seeing if there's enough interest
from those who would have to work with/on it...  From the Herald's Office
standpoint, I would have no objection if it would not be a problem for
