Having had a dalliance with commercial muds, I understand.  I had in mind
free muds with a strong rp element.  There are plenty of good FtF GMs but
the skills that make those GMs aren't really used to full effect in most
muds.  (I admit to being biased towards combat based muds)

I don't see why not, later on, commercial muds won't start asking such a
company to play on their grounds.  I imagine damn good professional people
in the company, not a bunch of kids messing around.  The only contemporary
example I can think of right now are club DJs that go around doing sets. 
Okay, they spend five minutes, not a few weeks absorbing the atmosphere
before they stick a record on but you get the idea.  You never know, you
might get fans that follw this company from mud to mud.  This is just talk

Now, who's willing to get it started? :)
