These weren't pro forma questions, or rhetorical devices. I am genuinely
interested to hear from people with divergent views, because if there's an
erroneous judgement somewhere, I'd like to hear about it. (And my mind is not
set in concrete - e.g. I have in the past supported ii), but have been told
that it's a non-starter.)
If Yakov's too busy with other stuff to respond, is there anyone else who'd
like to answer either one?
