I thought I did in my first reply to you as well as the next one to Emil
To restate only the general picture as short as possible, the problem is not
in the 'documented behaviour' as such/in itself but in the context of all of
the implications of that/such behaviour...Just as the core 'objection(s)'
are not concentrated on some idea of behaviour but about the specifics of
the current implementation...

devastation is more likely to come from an enemy with a smiling face than
from one whose countenance exudes suspicion and hate."
