I agree, this sounds like a good approach.

I do think we might want to avoid stating specifically: "In jurisdiction J 
we see law L which we interpret in such and such a way, and which results 
in architectural impact I". Rather, we might say: "If a law >were to be 
passed in some jurisdiction that imposed limitation L, then the 
architectural impact would be...". By all means, the examples we choose 
should be inspired by the sorts of laws we see being passed in practice. I 
just think it's best if we avoid giving our interpretations of the legal 
impact of particular specific laws, even if we are doing so to make an 
architectural point.
