Guys,

Let me add: Having real world use cases validate the cause in many
levels. In practice, this will generate a second sell, and a third,
etc. Domino effect.

Or rather, the CYA effect: Until someone else has taken the risk, why
put your A on the line?

So, I would call this a nice escape goat as well. And that's a LOT.
First kiss is most elusive. From then on it's downhill ;)

Congratulations to whoever made it happen!

Regards
A

PS. In some cases, its a good idea to stop at the first kiss... but I
think that the prospect of permeating the e-commerce dinosaur is sexy
as hell ;)
