Jacek et al-
  the more I try to follow the discussions on this list, the more 
convinced I am that I made a mistake not to pursue my objection and 
fight for preconditions and effects.  In all the work we are doing in 
my lab, and with our three industrial partners, we can't even get to 
first base without at least being able to distinguish between 
services that change the world (book buying) and those that don't 
(asking the cost of a book).  I've started to chime in on a couple of 
the discussion in this list and realized that my questions would 
equate to expressing a need to make this kind of distinction (at 
least), which is out of scope, so I have not pushed in.
  I am planning to pull my group out of the WG at this point, because 
we cannot afford the participation without any of our needs being 
addressed, but before doing so, I wanted to be absolutely sure I was 
understanding correctly.
