Indeed, which is precisely why a huge chunk of our system is aggregation
services and re-formatters, paired with evangelizing CAP as a 'service
replacement' or 'service enhancement' depending on who one is talking to. I
don't believe that replacing services in the EM community can be done by
stepping on people's toes. EAS, NWS and other services have a deep-set
following -- the only solution is to enhance and evangelize, and let things
take their course until the other side makes a decision.

CAP has a lot of possibilities, and anything can be reformatted to work with
it to a lesser or greater extent. But IMHO we shouldn't be over-confident
that stuff works with it when it really only works in a limited fashion. If
we do that and people latch on to it, it begins to look like marketing hype.
And even a little of that can destroy credibility.
