i believe we're reaching consensus on many of the key
starting points (note: this is not stating the opinions
are necessarily ratified). i believe the general objectives
of this theme are becoming quite clear in my mind as
well as others.

today i'll kick out another copy of the discussion points
to date with a bit more stronger (ie must, shall, can)
statements so as to knock down any remaining roadblocks
so that we can start fleshing these concepts out a bit
(eg identifying factorable entities, next level design
discussion, proto-type, etc).

hope this helps,
