Sorry - I just saw this message now.

I put some thoughts together as my WikiEducator project

Assuming that all these great OERs get built, then what? Finding good / appropriate ones and adopting them is another whole process.

Having worked as one of the editors on the Sofia Project - also Hewlett Foundation funded, we were concerned about the big picture and the eventual use of this material.

You're absolutely right in that integrating OER into the classroom is an important part of OER. We do have a section currently being developed called "Get OER," which discusses, somewhat, the issues you describe. However, integrating OER into the classroom and doing quality control is a fairly large topic. One of the current proposals is to have multiple mini-handbooks. I could certainly see one of those mini-handbooks being how to integrate OER into a classroom.

You're welcome to look over the http://wikieducator.org/OER_Handbook/get_OER and make specific suggestions, or simply send me an e-mail. It has been helpful for me to receive feedback from the OER community.
