Subject RE: Another cut at roles and responsibilities

Stephen,

If we ever sit down in some hypothetical cafe, remind me to have a talk with
you about how to present an argument for best effect.  :-)

Once I got past some of your phrasing, which I consider somewhat
injudiciously selected considering your likely audience, it occurred to me
that although you say that you disagree with Berin, you end up saying
largely the same thing that Berin did.  As Berin just said to you, it seemed
to him that you "might be violently agreeing", despite your starting your
argument with "I'm going to disagree with you!"

Berin has already adopted the idea that when a PMC is involved,
responsibility is vested in one person.  Actions can be delegated, but that
one agent is responsible.  Tom Sawyer took responsibility for getting the
fence painted.
