Given that you only promise a collation of cutting-room-floor out-takes worth saving, what can readers say? Find fault with facts in mostly anecdotal "he said she said" accounts? Hardly. Nor can one complain about omissions from such a sausage, can one? There are interesting and important related questions. "What is nationality, and what for?" might be one of them. Is sedent[ar]ism versus nomadism to be, as some (economists) have predicted for forty years, a class right question, with a global (nomad) elite and everyone else pretty well pegged? If you haven't already (hard to guess from the disclaimer,etc.) consider consulting the Council of Europe and E.U agency project http://www.coe.int/en/web/portal/roma/ . Also, not specifically Nomad versus Sendentary but about 'race' and other classes, http://www.davidpapineau.co.uk/blog/race-ethnicity-and-joining-the-club , which I think neglects the "born-into" effect imposed by family (like religiion).
In a session presented by Elsevier last year on how to write a world class paper, we were warned that a paper is typically read in detail by only one or two readers! I presume this does not include the reviewers. And a surprisingly large share (25-30%) of articles published even in leading journals with high impact factors are not cited within five years. The slides from the very clear presentation (or a version of it) are available at http://www.docstoc.com/docs/52577859/HOW-TO-WRITE-A-WORLD-CLASS-PAPER
