Can we find a better term than orphan?  While there are some issues 
which are not being worked on, a good part of this problem is when the 
person/entity asking the question is unaware of the work being 
undertaken.  That is not a orphan issue as much as a disparity of 
knowledge on work being undertaken on issues and I'm afraid were using 
orphan as an umbrella term.  The CSTD work is exceedingly helpful in 
bridging the latter problem and identifying where the gap actually exists...
