Just as the Appalachian trail was cleared across the USA, and bike paths are cleared in cities, LawOfTheAir.com should seek and spearhead the creation of aviation and border-issue-clear lanes for Solar (passive) ballooning.
The hot air balloon community does not work on these issues because it is (1) industrially intensive (2) tourist-oriented. The solar balloon community is smaller and more open to new ideas than the hot-air balloon community. For example, they are providing wind pattern information to NASA.
Humans are ocean faring ever since we were tool-making; but we are airborne for only a few hundred years. We have almost no collective experience or lore about living in the air. Compare this to ocean dwelling--ideas of the doldrums, the storms, the Easterly winds, etc. are in poetry, literature and public knowledge.
