Hi. I'm also for opening of member list, and I find Oleksiy's proposal 
of membership cards great, though not for reasons he states :) I think 
just an offer of receiving something tangible from OSMF would 
significantly increase membership numbers. Right now the most frequent 
answer to "what do I get if I join" from members is "uhm...". A single 
card, which I hope is not too expensive to make, would become a token 
that less active OSM contributors would value and show off a lot. It 
could be shown to people they encounter while mapping villages: it makes 
them not suspicious strangers with cameras, but verified members of a 
worldwide organization. And the card could be given for paying for three 
or more years in advance, to cover production costs, which also would 
result in less members leaving the OSMF each year.
