Thanks for the suggestion. Keep them coming. I think you are close to  
be actioned though ;)

Instead of opening a new issue for this one, I'd say it relates to  
ISSUE-24 and ISSUE-10. I believe the executive summary, maybe half or  
one page, would be also a good addition. Could be we are talking about  
the same thing here?
