I continue to read, and re-read the document... I put in the macro to
show an outline since the page is getting long ;-)

In the definitions there's the one for the prerequisite library
In reading that, and the places where it's mentioned, I think we can
generalize that to "prerequisite component" to account for prerequisite
tools. -- AFAIK most of the critical tools have accompanying tests now
and hence we can put some guards against really bad things happening --
Or add a "prerequisite tool" concept and some procedure for how those
are handled differently from "prerequisite libraries".
