Hi Nadeem,

thanks for your comments.
I just wanted to re-emphasis that sections after "vision" are not yet up 
to date and does not include yet comments received after my first draft.
I understand people might feel that their commetns have been ignored, 
but this is not the case ! just a matter of timing, i wanted to seed the 
discussion around the vision section asap.

So i will integrate other comments later this week.
