That would achieve the primary goal.

If we went that route, where/how would we post the reviews? I'm thinking someplace easier to search than the forums where we can group equipment by type.

Meg and I were actually planning on making a site for this, but I swear it doesn't influence my opinion on it. :P The reason I have this opinion is I don't think the HEMAA should be exposed to the potential liability related to gear approval. As soon as it fails, someone could say 'but it was approooooved! waaaahhhhhhhhhhh!"

I also don't want companies angry with the HEMAA or fighting over who is approved or not.
