I'm reminded of an old Woody Allen quote:  "Time is nature's way of
preventing everything from happening at once".

The fact that we're doing one thing now does not mean we won't also do
other things later.  As it says in the survey introduction, this is
part of an overall "brand refresh" effort.  Other pieces will occur as
well, but not all at once and certainly not all today.
