Could I suggest a subgroup of 'real users' be formed to help input useful
queries into your deliberations, as after all it is they who will eventually
have to navigate the systems the 'controllers' whoever they be actually
decide upon. 
Likely as not, users are a largely technically ignorant group as far as
special acronyms goes and may frequently resort to 'common language'
(horrors!) to explain their ideas, so patience may be needed.
So where might 'real users' come from? Perhaps those currently using special
names might be a start, as well as approaching a few major companies who do
not yet have a specialist and independent net-presence could also be useful
to identify perceived user-barriers. Using a 'snowball' approach would get
several more involved I am sure (as people bring in others they know, etc).
