Not at all. I think what people care about is the generality, not the
specifics. They just want to know that the "right sort of stuff" happened.
Even when they're confused or mistaken about whether it matters.

If anything, I think the declaration stuff borders on useless simply because
it's impractical. I don't know what I would do with it.

But all things considered, the classes IMHO focus too much on technology,
when what matters is processes.
