A very interesting article on many levels but one of the most interesting for researchers into language is the point that what will be developed is an ethnography of speaking rather than a grammar or dictionary.  Not knowing much about the project, it seems it would be useful to have both but I assume this is not practical.  I certainly see the point of this ethnography of speaking.
