If we made that stop, what would things look like?  I think we do not 
have a detailed, shared description of the alternative environment that 
would exist.  Most folk probably have their own sense of what it might 
be, but we're missing s shared specification.

Similarly, how to we get there?  What steps do we need to take, to move 
to this better environment?
