Sorry, guess I didn't phrase things very well.

I in no way meant to imply we shouldn't beat this to death in the list.

I guess I meant ... there must be well phrased points already made 'in 
the wild'. Let's leverage those rather than repeating them (quote them 
here), then enhance them. Rather than multiple people saying the same 
thing multiple ways - let's quote the well phrased concise point, and 
lever up from there. Rather than everyone starting every point from 
ground zero.
