I am glad we agree. We also agree that what is important is not
germane to the technical question of whether ambiguity is necessary, I
hope.

A comment is posted that raises a specific form of ambiguity. Your
response is that ambiguity is inevitable. Yet we agree that in this
case(and in other specific cases in which you have responded with this
flavor of comment)  it is trivial to avoid. So your response is at
best misleading or non-sequitor.

I'm sorry if my response came off as rude, however I am concerned that
there be clarity in these conversations as the outcomes may turn out
to be important.
