Assumption: The TC has more time than we.
Working the problem, they may come up with definitions more subtle,
flexible than we do.
If we constrain them, they won't be able to use their definitions.
It would be nice if we could 'define' / document our thoughts/understanding
(Yet another use for Sams site?) so they know where we're coming from?

You first Shawn!
Either put them on the site, or Sam/I will copy them up there?

I suggested Sam copy my 'glossary' out to another page.
I think this would be another worthwhile entry.

 *A* Definition would a good start though Shawn?

<chuckles/> Yep.

Still an unnecessary lack of clarity if we can agree on a definition.

That's Robs issue. If we go in with a hard definition, they can't.
Since they must follow the charter, slavishly.
