Hi Roy -- I did not imply that frequency capping annoys users. I was 
asking whether the benefits of capping are as salient where ads are not 
targeted and, hence, the advert pool per user is greatly increased (so 
lower likelihood of seeing repeated ads).

Jules is saying 'yes', it statistically improves the reach of an advert 
campaign (back to ROI, it seems).

So, can you (or anyone else) comment on whether Jonathan and Arvind's 
suggested process is workable from a technical (put aside 
business/congtractual for the moment) perspective?
