I think we have agreement here, now.

It was intended to point to each of the major QA resources, and give a 
brief explanation of what it is about.  For example, the taxonomy sits on 
the web site, and is linked from the QA home page (and other places), but 
there is no explanation anywhere of what it is.  If Ch.2 comes across as 
"defend and justify the Activity", then it probably needs re-writing before 
putting it on the Web site (if everyone agrees with Ian's suggestion.)

As agreed, I will cut Ch.2 before FPWD.  But I think it is a mistake to add 
anything significant, until we have consensus what should be added.  There 
have been a number of suggestions, going in several different directions, 
starting with the issue #22 source.

Therefore, for additions to Intro, someone should circulate:

1. either a proposed table of contents (outline) for new stuff;
2. or proposed new text.

Then we can discuss and agree, before writing (which probably means: new 
stuff after FPWD, or else delay FPWD).

Sound acceptable?
