This sounds like the type of project to start on for the equipment and process development.  Bigger feature sizes, less complex packaging and sturdy part.

I’d be for publishing the information we learn, our tricks and “secret sauce” in some suitable open fashion:  whether it be a Creative Commons license or something else.  If we do, this could be a gigantic revolution in education for the next several classes of engineering students:  undergraduate and graduate!  (Provided we can enlist enough engineering professors who aren’t beholden to an NDA from some existing semiconductor fab or equipment manufacturer and are willing to publish results instead of patenting them.)
