Excellent points on both sides.

But I don't think this is ever going to stop, and I don't see the current 
direction having any more value.  Maybe I can change the direction to something 
with value.

Problem with current thread:  too many examples, or details or something that 
doesn't really nail the point.  They are all very good, and I hardly dispute any 
of what has been posted, but it is liking hearing "The sky is blue."  "No, air has 
O2"  and then 100 bits of support for each "side."

"My suggestion: KISS! Keep it simple stupid." - so that the finite resources are 
best used.

Pretty sure this whole thread revolves around what is "best" and who gets to 
decide it.   Pretty sure the first doesn't matter, because it is Mark, and I bet 
Mark is pretty on top of this issue.

I think the only way to sway anyone is by having a cost benefit return on 
investment 100 page study done, which isn't and shouldn't going to happen.

Also, this isn't happing:

I hope it feels so good to be right.
There is nothing more exhilarating
than pointing out the shortcomings
of others, is there?

bah.. I didn't want this post to be this big.
