Well, sure.  Daniel's problem was just that he's not an expert on the 
exact details involved, so he simply didn't have the relevant 
information.  And he said that in his post...  I'm sorry if you 
perceived him as being handwavy on purpose here.

I definitely agree that we should try to be specific about the 
structural problems with an approach, if there are any, as opposed to 
implementation difficulties in a particular implementation that don't 
have a structural underpinning.
