I also.
I can see that there is an architecture though.
The text just doesn't make it clear.

Yes, I think that's what happened.  Lots of ideas arrived, and were written
up, some of it implemented, but no other implementers were involved.

I think that this is one of the problems with documents spending so much time
as "individual" documents --- the accumulate cruft that is not structured
for group reading.

I think that the OMNI work is important, but it's far too involved for people
who are not doing it full time to contribute to.
