Thanks.

That's a wrinkle that needs to play out; I'll be interested to see how interop happens, and whether we need to change text or revisit decisions as a result. 

My biggest concern right now is that talking doesn't make the situation any clearer at this point, but it does block us from implementing and deploying it to get the experience we need.

Cheers,
