So for Pat, "concept" in most communities means "mental structure".
I think Pat is right, for some communities at least.    (05)

For Don "concept" subsumes "mission statement", "economic 
marketspace", and "annual goal".
Others contributing to this list have used "concept" in a way similar 
to Don (roughly, to embrace anything non-physical).    (06)

Houston, we have a problem here.
