Hi Adrian.

Thanks for your suggestion.

It may be the case that other T3A members see it like this.
I personally strongly disagree with such a point of view and would 
really like to see an official statement how these paragraphs are meant.

Michael, can you take care of that, to avoid further confusion what is 
in the domain of the T3A and more importantly what is not.

It should be easy and straightforward to be transparent and clear in 
that regard, for the benefit of every party involved.
