Speaking for myself here on PPML as I've done since the list got spun 
up, I can shockingly say "I agree with Owen".  

See the PPC transcript for what I and my colleagues had to say about

If we need to streamline the needs evaluation, that's a different 
kettle of fish. Throwing it out is a mistake.
