Just a minute. Please let not build scientific con/pro rules from one or 
two examples. As presented in Thomas' and Alexander's memos there are a lot 
of parameters involved which interact together. The interest of an analysis 
is to permit to understand the interactions and to reduce the parameter set.

I reviewed quickly these two mails. May I comment that I did not understand 
anything. This is not a négative comment: I am working on an analysis of a 
different part of the network systems trying to reduce a lot of concerns to 
their roots. So I tried to see if I could peruse the mail and understand 
it. Not yet. As I did not for Joanna's and William's Best Practices read 
the same way, but preceiously archived.

I would suggest that Thomas (?) puts his current ideas/findnings on a web 
site and that  Joanna/Williams work on it to see if there can be some 
cross-pollenization with their ideas. Then that we try to reduce all this 
and additions to some limited logical parameter tree. I do not know if it 
will work, but the GA is probably the most diversified Internet competent 
and motivated mailing list. The opportunity to define a "GA's Rules" to 
replace the "Roberts Rules" is unique and worth the try.

Thank you Thomas for keeping the momentum.
