Subject: Re: The Overview & Requirements Spec is TOAST ??

Hi David,

I may have missed something here but on first reading I sense a bit of over 
reaction. Is the main issue, that you personally don't have the bandwidth 
or do you basically object to the process. After all we aren't talking 
about a constitutional amendment here - surely there must be a rational way 
of aligning the Requirements (as we talked about doing all along) to the 
reality that we are facing *now*. I had always viewed the requirements as a 
living document - was I mistaken ?
