Yes, but the 'reality' is that if the so-called 'short-sighted' view hadn't
been taken, there would not have been the enormous change in the way that
documents are structured, that we have seen. And as I say, this creates a
new level of understanding onto which we can build.

Real-life has an annoying tendency of not playing itself out along the
milestones of our project plan. ;)

All the best,
