Yes- those are the words I was trying to say.
I might want to accumulate ALL of the calls, in one big honking list. Or
I might want a "overview" of the average of each profile point.
I think we need both, in addition to allowing me to put metadata into
the profile point. Because with the metadata, I can now go back through
the accumulated list and filter out what I care about.

Part of the problem with all communication is we all have buzzwords and
different ways of phrasing concepts. I know I for one, have a HARD TIME
getting an idea typed out (as you will see in my previous post :) ).
I cannot speak for Gennadiy, but I believe he was just trying to share
his thoughts and I do not think you should get offended. This list is a
pretty big thing and we are bound to run into situations where a few
lines of text make sense to some but not others.
The funny thing, is I saw his post and went "YES! That is what I was
trying to say!". Which is a different reaction than you had.
