I understand your point; I realize that I have not made mine as clear as
I whished I have.

I think it is too early to ask the question, because it sounds
uncomfortably the same as "have we failed?". Imagine the ramifications
of the community answering "no". I understand what you are trying to
achieve by asking, but I see no point in getting on that slippery slope
as of now.

In other words, I think that by asking the question, you open the door
to failure being an option.

Yes, we can.

Repeat after me:
Failure is not an option.
