I think that whatever format you choose, people will want different info.
So I think it is important that the merged file you base the summaries
on is also available on the web.

Good idea... too?

How about all three? :-) 

What do we want to get out of these stats and summaries? Globally 
I'd like to know how many users there are, where they are (country), 
and who they are (commercial, educational, governmental). 
The total number is easy, the breakdown per country is easy, 
and the breakdown per category we can only do in the US and the UK? 

To see how well used the web is I'd like to know how many documents are
accessible (which is impossible...any wild guesses?), and how many requests
are made. That we can do, if we keep say a league table of number of requests
per server per week. Is anybody keeping that sort of statistic?
