Perhaps, and I also find some good food for thought in Suresh's proposal(s).
On the other hand, we need to focus on the questions that people are looking
for answers to, and I don't think this is one of them.  Geoff's rejoinder to
my attempt over the weekend to extract a "friendly amendment" was a good
one:  by getting "rigorous" we start bringing in dependencies on
implementation-specific notions such as "communications channel,"   which
then have to be defined.

Procedurally, we were at the point of agreeing to whatever way Chris and
Geoff came up with of resolving their different perspectives.  They have
done that, Geoff has accepted some suggested tweaks, and I think it's time
incorporate them and look for new fish to fry.  

Unless there is a substantial body of opinion that says "we MUST resolve
this better before we can move on" I'd suggest we move on.  Dissenters are
welcome to record an issue so that we are more or less required to revisit
the matter before leaving Last Call.
