That's good.

"easy to explain to the decision makers"?  It's okay, but sounds somewhat
cold and corporate to my (admittedly foreign) ears.  I'll wait a little
while in case somebody has a better idea.

(Since we all seem to be in a chatty mood -- on Tuesday last, I was
teaching virtual memory allocation techniques, and needed a translation
for "eager allocation" as opposed to "lazy".  One student proposed
"allocation zélée".  I'm loving it.)
