Per telecon, we're supposed to take further discussion of placement of 
these 5 initial use cases to email.  There are two views -- keep 'em up 
front, or distribute them into context...

This would be easy enough to do.  See for example today's editor's draft:

The way we left this in telecon was:  up-front for now.  If anyone wants

** any other integration needs?
