The BIBFRAME Editor is still a little too rough around the edges to open up yet.  It would raise more elementary questions ("Why doesn’t this link work?") versus more constructive ones ("Doing X is interesting, but might it be better to do Y?"). 


We plan to deliver a functioning demo installation so anyone can try the editor in the next few months.  We will also make the code available at the same time.  

Since Bibframe and its supporting code is being developed  in the open with collaborative involvement from the community, perhaps just provide a link to the source repository when the development is being done (Github?).  That will self-select tire-kickers to those who can build and install it themselves and they'll be able to understand the current state of play.  Less technically savvy interested parties will at least be able to follow along to monitor the level of activity, change history, etc.

That could offer a nice way to meet both sets of needs.
