OK: just a thought - this has gone pretty much far enough now. Nick and I have
agreed on a model which settles our differences, and which is also extremely
close to your model, and Jarkko is also going to agree to it. (Aren't you
Jarkko? :)

Under the new scheme, yes, some of the things you mention are "broken", and
will need to be changed; some of them, however, are merely stylistic
differences, and since there's no accounting for taste, it's pointless to
argue about them.

So, I think 
    1) We're so almost there, there's no much left to *usefully* discuss.
       Let's hang on until Nick comes out with a consolidated plan.
    2) we really ought to get this away from P5P, before it gets nasty. 
       It has got reasonably close, from most parties involved.
