Don't you think that's a more appropriate argument for the merits of
one approach versus another? The goal on this thread is to come up
with a set of minimum standards that all approaches should meet in
order to be considered. Fast recovery for what we expect to be an
achievable definition of fast is an appropriate minimum standard.
Local recovery is one possible method for achieving that standard, not
a standard itself.
