There is no-one per se that owns this problem, as the problem was not 
originally discussed at the Primer subgroup meeting.  I agree it is a 
problem and would be interested in some supporting prose that addresses 
this issue. That being said, I'm starting to worry about the scope (and 
consequent timely delivery) of the primer.  I'm seeing a pattern of smaller 
and smaller existing specifications and a growing interest in a richer, 
more detailed, greater expansive primer.  I'm very reluctant to add any 
additional content at the moment, until (as I indicated in the last 
teleconference), we find someone interested in helping on the editing / 
integrating of this work.
