(Hey, Olympics reference!) I think the modularity TBL speaks of is well understood by everyone here. I also understand from 15 years of building systems for clients that sometimes granularity can be taken too far. It can be used to push unpleasant aspects of systems out until an argument can be made that their exclusion to that point is reason to remove altogether.

Thanks again for your help tracking down information.
