Unfortunately, press releases don't qualify as reliable source (RS) under
Wikipedia's guidelines.  Guild Software's NAOS engine seems to be known only
through press releases, at this point.  If we could get somebody from Guild
to give a talk about NAOS (say, at the upcoming Erlang activity in the
functional programming conference in Tokyo later this year), resulting in
some paper that gets a page or so in a conference proceedings, it's
Wikipedia RS, since it will have gone through something like peer review.
