There were several requests to Azamat to desist from his line of  
questions.  While I appreciate that there were delicate matters there,  
I was actually hoping that some of these questions (the last three, in  
particular) would be addressed in subsequent communications from the  
NeOn community and others.    (01)

If there is something offensive in these questions I apologize for  
missing it.  Otherwise, it seems like a good opportunity for the forum  
to understand a little more the vision and conclusions of NeOn.    (02)

I should note that I've spent some hours with the NeOn site (and have  
heard NeOn presentations to the telecons), and benefited greatly from  
the site and talking to its leaders. I consider the site a treasure  
trove. But it is not treasure that I have had time to explore in any  
depth, let alone boil down into the most relevant results.  If it's  
possible to sum up the progress and conclusions of the NeOn project in  
this context (or give a reference to a document that does the same),  
that seems to precisely address the charter of this forum, as I read it.    (03)

Thus, I support Ron Wheeler's observations. Please let us know how we  
can pursue greater understanding in a more charter-agreeable way?  
Thanks.    (04)
