Cool! I'm looking forward to this - it should be really useful!
By the way, I'm just back from Cape Town, where I presented a paper
about SignWriting at a conference called Mobility, Language, and
Literacy. People were really interested  -and a senior scholar in the
linguistic anthropology of literacy may start talking about SW in his
classes!
Best,
Erika
