	None of them looks, to me, actually a discussion. They look more
	like "references" to the possibility of a bootstrap CPA, but both of
	them state that this is "work in progress"

	What makes you feel I said this?
	I said that a CPP points to the BP document because we were talking about a
	BP. Of course, the CPP may point to many BPs.

	There is a SINGLE CPA that is negotiated by the two parties.
	Let's take the simple case of two parties stating they support one BP (it
will be
	simple to extend to multiple BPs).
	The CPP of PartyA references the BP_Sell_The_Flowers. The CPP of PartyB
	references the BP_SellThe_Flowers.
	PartyA and PartyB negotiate ONE CPA.
	Your (2) (which says, if I am correct "The Respondant must calculate the
	same CPA as her potential client") is improbable in the sense that there is
only one

	Somebody from the BP team should comment on this.

	The activities of the CPA team are currently oriented in providing specs
	that would allow as maximum ease of implementation as possible.

	I do not, honestly. I think that once the CPA specs will be all finished
	it will be easier to understand, but I do not think that this will be
	Of course, this is an opinion.
	Runtime compatibility will really be much more tricky!
