I'm hoping that the worksheet will help define this.

Yes. I don't want to send a massive form that has 200 questions, as I
think that will be off-putting to most people and might result in
contributors saying "eh, it's too hard, why bother?" (But it shouldn't
be up to the press team to pull all the information together
independently, either.)
