Labos Elemer asked me to forward this reply of his (to my
message) to SeqFan-list, as he accidentally sent it privately
only to me. I have taken the liberty to delete most of the longish
quotation of my original message.

A kind of well codable classification is required. As a good start
this is promizing.
Keep alive NJAS (e.g. send vitamins him), he has a lot to do.
Hardy and Wright gone without leaving Contents or Index to their
classical book.
Somewhere on Net an ambitious classification of the whole mathematics
is available.
-------------------
The growing rate of EIS is about :
its size is doubled in 3 years
In 12 years 1 millions may be reached.
----------------------
Another issue:
I did not find in EIS the Empty-Sequence,
only its characteristic sequence..
What to do?
