Hi Mark,

Thanks for your nice compliment.  The sad truth, though, is that I don't
think that I'm the best person to respond to the ideas that you've set out.
I haven't thought as much about the issues that you're raising as about
other things, or made use of the same categories, really.  Sorry to be such
a dud of an interlocutor!     

Are there others who could comment?
