Obviously there is a bit of extremism / alarmism there ... the truth is that
some are ready, but many more aren't (yet?).
IMHO, we should focus on getting as many of the latter moved forward as
possible - rather than trying to scare everyone away from the solution.
(Especially when quoted out of context; sound bites (and the written
equivalent) can be rather misleading).
