I prefer to fix the definition in the agent overload draft and progress 
it first or in parallel with the load draft.  We need to finish all of 
these drafts and the agent overload draft is the oldest.  This shouldn't 
slow the load draft if we do things in parallel.

Then, this definition should be generic enough, to allow a direct applicability to Agent Overload draft.
