Yes, that is essentially the core of the main proposition I was trying to assert in my much more long-winded (many-byted?) fashion - so much so that you might have had trouble ascertaining what it was. Your version is well stated.

And we may have trouble ascertaining exactly which proposition is being asserted, as any lawyer or diplomat will appreciate.  Or scientist, for that matter.  For example, it is a true art form to insult a person with carefully chosen language that, taken literally, asserts a highly complimentary proposition.
