I would actually object to such a list, and would sincerely advise you
to _not_ advertise that you're using NetBSD for mission-critical
applications.  Actually, i'll go one step further, and say that you
probably shouldn't advertise what hardware/software your using for
mission-critical applications, in general...

It's publicizing information that _some_ people are likely to use the
wrong way; the Internet is _not_ a friendly place.  I dunno if it ever
was, but it definitely isn't now.
