Bob, your observation is a correct one. For the BCP we started out with
one Module and were evolving toward two. We thought that a single module
based on pricipals that Harrie worked on for DiffServ (including the
work you did for rowPointers) would be a good idea. 

I think some of your ideas are good ones. Harrie?? can we integrate them
and have a proposal for the meeting?
