I think that is exactly what Paul Smith and I were discussing in
our most recent few exchanges.

FWIW, I do believe that at least a subset of the discussions are
substantive and of broad applicability --at least to the
advantages of getting the analysis out there-- and not just
"extended consulting".  Other bits may be fairly close to the
latter, but probably the best way to sort the categories out
would be to start constructing a document.
