Re-reading Cody's original post, it seems the idea is ...
1) a sort of umbrella for all things developing on EAB. Each user can contribute something to a project that is ongoing. Like Akira's game, if some one drew something worthwhile, it is posted.
2) A sort of knowledge base for other users.
3) Instead of an individual asking for a game to be released, it in the organisation that asks, the collective being better than the individual.
That's how I read it anyway.
If you start off with just those, the rest can come later surely.
