This is a wonderfully useful summary, thank you Bryan. I think it comes closest to shaping or informing consensus rather than finding what that (chimeric) consensus is. And this brings me to a related issue. May I humbly suggest that those who replied off-list consider doing so on-list in the future? In this case Bryan took the trouble to provide a complete overview with bibliography, but I was personally eager to see what other people's views were, and had it not been for that, I would not have known!
