"Business Case" is a rather loaded term because to those in capitalist
environments, it means non-governmental entities, while in Socialist
societies it might mean something quite different because although, as a
former President of the U.S. said "the business of the American people is
business" this may very well not hold in, say Scandinavia.

It is important to keep in mind that the principles of inclusion in Web
matters, whether "official" or simply "business", in fact, matters.
