Hmm... so it's impossible for a site looking at various vendors to lurk and get a feel for which one is a 'best fit' for their needs without first buying one. Also, it's not obvious whether things like "How to get that Packeteer you bought to control file sharers to do other useful stuff too..." are in-bounds. Similarly for any *other* traffic shaping technology that doesn't happen to be one of the named vendors. So given that people will *already* presumably have bought one of the "approved" devices, and said devices already probably have their own foobox-users group list someplace, what will said list really accomplish besides "My foobox is bigger than your foobox" discussions?
