or will do or should do.
bang on, John!
discussion on the list continues to use a perspective that sounds like
the sender gets to dictate things, rather than that the receiver has the
option of using information.
at every turn we should start by asking how a feature will benefit the
receive-side and what our basis is for believing that they will *see*
that benefit (and hence be motivated to use it)?
