Dave, I think you make a lot of interesting points here. I
particularly like aspects of your categorization.
I tend to disagree with your analysis however. At the current
juncture I think that you and I don't have a lot to gain by engaging
in a long mailing list discussion on this topic. I'd be happy to
engage with you in a higher bandwith (in person/phone) chat on these
issues; I think we'd find that we do have a fundamental disagreement
although I'm not entirely sure where. Others should feel free to jump
in; depending on what happens I may pop in later or not.
As always, thanks for the careful thought.
