-1 to this. Is flying to the moon explicitly prohibited too :-)

+0, perhaps caveated by the duration of the TC? I.e. only if we can
do it in the allotted time?
I think the last two sentances are redundant?

I guess that on completion of the initial deliverable, our opinions may have
changed? I'd rather leave further development until clearer views are
available at that time?
