Anne and I both stated the same about a goal of identifying the "potentially
missing" standards.  I talked about drawing the boundaries around these and
still including these "boxes" within our architecture.  I strongly agree
that this might be better if broken out separately.

> AG008 is coherent and consistent in its definition
