maybe you are right on this.

The target groups for REUSE in my understanding are:

 1. Software Developers who have been tasked by management to annotate
    copyright and licensing information in the repository
 2. Software Architects looking for projects/libraries/components with
    compatible licenses to their software architecture/project licensing

End-users and newcomers are not the main target. Even if some content, 
which could be interesting for end-users, like basic copyright and 
licensing principles, could also be interesting for the developers, who 
sometimes do really lack the basics.

Therefore I could imagine that REUSE could be a communication channel 
towards developers of the FOSS4SMEs content.

What do you think?
