As I mentioned in a couple other posts - it's entirely possible to find plenty of people in academia/government/corporate life/non-profits who really like to get involved on this topic.

I think the simple answer here is 'yes'. Being a member of the original Stack Overflow, I can testify that this software is tuned for massive user involvement. There's no reason not to get people involved - best I can see.
