Jon this is a great idea to spur a constructive dialog on the safety of these systems. What we will have to be careful of is the tendency to "bash" a particular brand from a user stand point and the manufacturers are going to have to stand back and do their best not to get too defensive when people voice concerns.
I don't believe there is a single company out there that would intentionally produce a flawed product, especially when it comes to the safety of their customers. If there are insights the manufacturers may have on problem areas the shade-tree mechanic should be aware of it would certainly be beneficial to everyone.
One thing this should not be is one of those "my product is better than the other guys" arguments.
