Mike did not comment on this so it was not in my previous reply. The 
approach that we took is that an increment in information is better than 
the current lack in some of these areas, particularly with regard to 
management applications (section 5). I have to agree with your observation 
that quite a lot more could be written. We think the observations 
contained in these sections while not complete add to understanding and 
are good practices. Section 5 stems mostly from my experience sometimes 
learned the hard way.
