My point is that a coherent approach to systems engineering would be the most efficient and robust way to resolve the issue.  Is this controversial?  And rather, I choose not to ignore the fact that this conversation has been going on for many years and that we have already covered many topics in great detail.  The list archives are a great source of information and analysis from diverse people, which is why we linked to them from http://futureofutc.org
